Description


Since around the 1970's, the world has witnessed a technological revolution equaling no less than a global paradigm shift in the way we communicate in our social relationships. The impact of the new technology has impacted every aspect of our lives from early childhood to older ages. This technology has revolutionized social communication and brought the world together with a single click. This book explores the effects of the internet on our social relationships. This impact is tremendous and often individuals seek therapy for the new issues that this type of communication presents, whether it be parents who are concerned about their teenagers addiction to texting, blogging, and posting on Facebook, My Space or Twitter; or couples whose relationships are threatened by internet infidelity, inattentiveness to their partner, and/or abuse of pornographic websites. The chapters contained in this book provide not only important information on these topics across the life span but also provide helpful hints for individuals and mental health practitioners as well.
