A 6-hour training with Joseph Zannella, MA, LADC
October 19, 2023
PRESENTATION: This training is designed for clinicians at any skill level to explore and understand the pathological qualities unique to the Internet and its ever evolving hazards. We all talk about being addicted to email, chat, games and social media, but what are the facts and how really dangerous is it. Our health, privacy, ethics, safety and child development are all being impacted and most people don’t appreciate these hazards except in some vague sense of unease. The Internet and the apps we use every day are changing us in ways even the creators of these systems didn’t expect or predict. Our clients are living their lives on the Internet; we need to know what this means for them, and their recoveries. We clinicians are living our lives on the internet and we need to assess what it is doing to all of us.
- Discuss the developmental issues associated with growing up in a wired world;
- Describe how some pathologies have flourished as a result of being connected;

- Explain the arena available to the antisocial personality;
- List the Ethical dangers of accessing the World Wide Web;
- Summarize the perverse reality of the Dark Web; and
- Describe what not to do when using the Internet.
