I’m teaming up with Mind Matters to do a workshop at The Drake Hotel in Toronto on May 15th, at 6pm, all about techniques for cutting out online compulsions and learning how to make the internet work for you (instead of you just clicking away on a mouse for little hits of dopamine like you’re in some start-up’s lab experiment).
Tickets are $45 and you can get them here: www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1472846?utm_medium=bks Space is limited so grab tickets quickly.
I had so many online compulsions when I was struggling with mental illness but they weren’t things we touched on in therapy because internet addiction wasn’t very well understood or even accepted as a real issue at the time. So after finishing therapy, I took the skills I’d learned cutting out other compulsions in my life and applied those to all of my online compulsions, supporting that with the design and systems thinking tools I was using to help companies navigate change in my professional work. So it’s that personal experience of recovery, combined with interactive design thinking exercises, that I’ll be sharing with participants at the workshop. Everybody will walk away with a structured plan for cutting out compulsions and doing more of what matters to you.
