The Relationship Between Emerging Technology & Psychodynamic Theory

Often when I present, people are surprised that I teach on both emerging technologies such as social media and video games, and classic psychodynamic theories.  Although it may initially seem counterintuitive, especially to classically trained psychotherapists and social workers, I see a strong connection between the two.  Here is the first in a series of posts featuring work I am doing with the University at Buffalo, in which Charles Syms and I discuss the relationship between the two.

  1. Hi, Mike. I’ve been away from your blog for way too long and just stumbled across this video. Thank you so much for speaking about your own theoretical underpinnings and how they relate to tech! It’s a lovely way to conceptualize the use of both in your work and in my own. I look forward to exploring this understanding more.
