This talk asks us to consider if our relationships to or through screens are now presiding over our relationships with each other - and, if the price of constant connectivity is fast becoming a new human disconnect? Dr. Mari Swingle is an active writer, researcher and practitioner who has been working in collaborative clinical practice with adults, children and families for over twenty years. She is author of i-Minds: How Cell Phones, Computers, Gaming and Social Media are Changing Our Brains, Our Behavior, and the Evolution of Our Species and a 2015 recipient of a prestigious Federation of Associations in Brain and Behavioral Sciences Foundation (FABBS) Early Career Impact Award for her major research contributions to the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior and increasing awareness of research through media and public outreach. She is unabashedly committed to champion Health & Happiness in the digital age: Her message is strong; speaking to the need for balance between our relationship(s) with technology and with each other. She preaches and practices a balanced life enjoying singing, painting and is a passionate, albeit not particularly talented, skier. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
