Overview

The TechProof Workshop seeks to counteract the seductive lure of news, messaging, and social media consumption, with a view to eliminating its more destructive effects. The Internet of today is not the  thing it once was. Complusive use of email, messaging, gaming, social media, adult sites and chatrooms is widespread. 
Like gambling, substance abuse, and other forms of compulsive behavior, this digital technology addiction is having profound effects on our health, life, and happiness. This course aims to restore the balance. Elements include:

  • Understanding - types, features, and definitions of tech addiction
  • Diagnosis - spotting compulsive and maladaptive behaviors
  • Recognition - acknowledging the role of anxiety and discomfort
  • Rebooting - breaking free from unconscious patterns and habits
  • Reintegration - mastering the robots in the long-term

Format

The TechProof workshop enhances awareness of the role of digital technology in our lives, and offers practical control measures for rebalancing our human and digital selves. The live, 60-minute core workshop is reinforced by a 30-day course workbook, which helps to ensure implementation and habit change in the long term. At the end of the 30-day program, participants are encrouaged to submit results and impressions, and course graudates are issued with an official cerfiticate of completion.

Venue Requirements


All workshops require adequate seating and data projection facilities. Ideally, the venue should be removed from the participants’ immediate work environment.  Workshop duration and delivery format are both flexible, and can be adjusted to fit the venue as necessary.
