The Comox Valley Jung Society presents Can you hear me now? – the impact of smartphones on the Psyche with Jungian analyst John Betts on Friday, Jan. 22, at North Island College.
Betts takes a provocative Jungian look at how smartphone use may impact our personality, parenting styles, and child development. Many of us use smartphones to keep in touch with our family and friends, but does spending too much time on our smartphones affect our relationships? Why do we get anxious when we’re away from our smartphone? Do smartphones make us less empathetic and more narcissistic?
The presentation (Room 203, Tyee building, 7 p.m.) costs $20 at the door, or $15 for Jung Society members. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
