Catherine Steiner-Adair, a prominent clinical psychologist, will speak at Kingswood Oxford School on Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. about her popular book, The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age.
The presentation, which is open to the public and free of charge, is sponsored by the Parent Education Committee. It will be held in Roberts Theater.
Dr. Steiner-Adair, who teaches at Harvard Medical School and has a private practice outside Boston, has worked with more than 350 independent schools over the past 30 years, leading workshops on topics related to strengthening social and emotional intelligence and resilience of children. She has appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, PBS, and NPR, among others.
During her presentation, Dr. Steiner-Adair will examine ways in which technology and media put children at risk at every stage of development, while challenging what it means to be a family. She offers advice about how to deconstruct unhealthy messages from online culture and create space for nourishing deep attention, creativity, empathy, and healthy relationships.
