The digital era is one that brought with it a landslide societal shift. Every single aspect of our lives, from the way we think, play, love, and interact, has been affected -- and not always for the better. i-Minds attempts to expose the underbelly of the digital age and the dangers of constant connectivity on our health and relationships. With over 18 years of clinical practice and research to draw from, Dr. Swingle’s narrative demonstrates: 

●     How our brains are changing in response to constant digital connectivity

●     The rise in anxiety, stress, and depression associated with i-addiction

●     How the brains of “digital immigrants” respond in contrast to those of “digital natives”

●     The positive steps we can take to embrace new technology while protecting our health and well-being 

Dr. Mari is a neurotherapist and behavioral specialist who practices at the highly regarded Swingle clinic. She holds an MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology, an MA in Language Education,  and a BA in Visual Arts. She has won numerous awards for her postdoctoral work on the effects of i-technology on brain function, and speaks regularly on the effects of i-media on the neurophysiology of children and adults.
