About This Event

Event Description:

Join Caroline Kohles, the JCC’s senior program director of Health and Wellness for an interview with clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist Sherry Skyler Kelly. This webinar will combine the research of neuropsychology with the power of positive psychology to enlighten us on the impact of digital technology on aging.
While we all know the world is changing with technology, few of us realize how our minds are changing with it. Pre-COVID, the average adult spent over 24 hours per week scrolling, gaming, streaming, or searching the web. For many, that time has now increased exponentially. Learn how digital technology is influencing aging and our social-emotional functioning. Discover why we are more connected to our devices than to one another and what we can do to foster connection in the digital age. We will discuss how social media and entertainment platforms are training our responses, what research tells us about aging healthy with technology, as well as the key evidence-based positive psychology strategies for staying emotionally vibrant in the 5-G world!
