Psych Central


Free Webinar on Social Media and Relationships, April 4thSocial media, including Facebook and Twitter, has changed relationships forever. Thanks to the Internet, we’ve changed the way we communicate with others, make friends and find romantic partners. These changes have no doubt produced both positive and negative consequences.

Want to learn more about social media’s impact on relationships?

The PBS series This Emotional Life is hosting a free webinar and interactive discussion on this topic next week.

I’m honored to be one of the panelists along with a slew of fantastic experts, including:

  • Therese Borchard, Associate Editor at the award-winning site, Psych Central – the Internet’s largest and oldest independent mental health and psychology network.
  • Kari Henley, Huffington Post blogger, writer, public speaker, and expert in group facilitation.
  • Dr. Elvira G. Aletta, a clinical psychologist working in Amherst, New York; her career includes positions at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan and the Executive Director of the Behavioral Healthcare Network, Inc.
  • Dr. Ryan Howes, a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice in Pasadena, California. Many of his clients focus on relationships, mood disorders, personal growth, and sexual issues.

Interfaith minister and nondenominational wedding officiant Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway will be moderating the webinar. (I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Rev. Laurie Sue before both for Psych Central and for Weightless.)

Please join us for the free webinar on Monday, April 4 at 5:00 p.m. EDT (2:00 p.m. PDT). You can register for it here.
