Dr. Chinwe’ Williams,
associate professor, College of Counseling, Psychology and Social Sciences,
Argosy University, Atlanta was recently quoted in “The Network Journal.” Dr.
Williams discussed the relationship that people have with technology.
“Technology holds an
important place in our modern society. However, the amount of time we spend on
technology is astonishing and can impact us socially and psychologically. While
technology can provide a nice escape from life stressors (e.g., Netflix binges
and Instagram surfing), our attachment to technology can also breed isolation,”
To disconnect, Dr.
Williams recommends “taking a hike” and “nurturing important relationships.
There’s nothing like real face time, specifically sharing the same space and
breathing the same air as another human being.”
