Online Behaviours – Why we and children do what we do online:
An update to cyberpsychology which includes Child Development and Attachment
This course is an in depth, theoretical and philosophical expansion of my book recently published by Routledge. The course will explain how technology is changing us as relational beings and how this impacts our development and conversational abilities online and beyond.
Technology in Therapy or Coaching
This course introduces you to various forms of technology from VR to Biofeedback. The course will provide learners with a range of technologies and the background theory that underpins their use. When and where to use HRV or Games, versus how you can support your clients to use tech they already own to support their healing and progress. There will be an emphasis on the legalities of data protection and safety for clients, especially children in the UK.
This course runs on a face to face basis so you can try the equipment for yourself!
