Do you ask about your client’s “digital diet” when taking a case history? Today Dr Adrian Lopresti is joined by psychologist and one of the USA’s foremost addiction experts, Dr Nicholas Kardaras. Nicholas describes how excessive technology use affects our brains, destroying the myelin sheaths in the same ways substance abuse does. He also discusses how increased screen time primes us for increased aggression, impulsivity, and deteriorating mental health, how video games affect the HPA axis, and best practices for assessing and treating clients with technology addiction.
