'Black Mirror: the influence of technology and social media on the therapeutic relationship', with Max Dalda Müller


This insightful evening event at Iron Mill College, Exeter is open to all.

Background
:

10 years ago the iPhone was first released. Today, 80% of the UK population own a smartphone and spend an average 2 and 3/4 hours a day using it, mostly on social media. Smartphones and social media are changing the way we communicate with one another, as well as influencing the way we see ourselves and the world.

How can we as therapists respond to these changes? Can we use technology and social media as a therapeutic tool? What about our own relationship with technology?

My name is Max Dalda Müller, I am a teacher, trainer and counsellor in private practice. I have felt the presence and impact of technology in the lives of my clients and in my personal experience. Sometimes it has been a useful tool which brings people together. At other times it has been the cause of discord, arguments and conflict. At its worst, it has developed into addiction and isolation.

I will explore these issues in my talk, focusing particularly on my own personal attempt at doing a digital detox.

What our Students Say

“My experience with the iron Mill was the best decision in my life, I would rate the IMI 10/10. I'm not saying it was easy, especially starting a new career at the age of 50, but I got through with a lot of hard work and dedication. Our tutors were an inspiration during the four years. Since I got my Diploma I have been so busy counselling, only last week I was offered another new job, it's amazing.”

What our Students Say

“It achieved a great balance between knowledge of the topic and making this interesting and close to us... the Tutor managed to make {the lecture} understandable to us with day to day examples. At the same time we felt that he was really an expert in the topic. From a HR perspective we were delighted to get so many people participating in the Q&A after the talk, as this is not the usual way our staff behaves.”
