The Growing Problem

If you’re reading this, you’re probably one of the 4.2 billion people on social media around the world and if you’re under 25 you’ve known nothing else. What's theoretically a fantastic way to connect with people has turned from an idealistic experiment into the largest mass communication tool in history – with a host of unfortunate and unintended consequences.

The fact is the human brain has not evolved fast enough to be able to cope with the avalanche of information, opinion and threat that exists on the average social media feed. So much so that a good deal of our action online is unthinking, inauthentic and mostly unconscious. More importantly – it's damaging.

The natural state for all humans is to be part of a group and to feel that comforting sense of belonging. This innate desire, coupled with some completely natural but unfortunate thinking patterns (that social media exploits) are leading to sharp rises in levels of addiction, anxiety, stress, depression, loneliness, and self-harm – not to mention anger, narcissism, and cyberbullying at the violent end of the spectrum.

What’s needed is a space to understand what’s going on and to be armed with the tools to take action and improve your life.

This workshop is your opportunity to do just that.

Perhaps you want to re-evaluate your relationship with social media or to understand a friend who seems to be disappearing down a ‘rabbit hole’. Or perhaps you’re a parent with children you’re worried about or have someone else in your life who seems less happy than they once were. Or maybe you just want to understand how this new technology works and vitally, how it effects your psychology.

The Workshops – (20 Places Per Workshop)

In this workshop Nick will take you on an exciting tour of how social media effects your life and the lives of the people around you – most importantly, he will give you tools, strategies and confidence to take control of your relationship with this Technology.

The workshop will be delivered in four stages:

1. Social Media discussion – what it is, how it works and how it impacts lives

2. Why Smartphones and Social Media are designed as they are – unpacking why humans are so vulnerable

3. Exploring the vulnerability of our neurology and psychology

4. Toolkit – how to remain in control of your Smartphone and Social Media and lead a happier life

Nick will explore the following:

• How to supercharge your confidence and feel good when online

• What’s happening inside your head when it interacts with technology

• Why Social Media is so addictive

• Understanding the psychology of conspiracy theories

• How to spot misinformation, scams, and fraudsters

• Understanding how social media affects our decision making

• Why so many people are angry online

• Learn how to focus and increase concentration

• Understand what real friendships look like

• How to make a strong connection with someone

• The 5 things that science says make you happy (hint, they are not on your phone)

The Workshops are deliberately designed for small groups so that each participant can ask their own questions and feel they’re getting solutions tailored for them.
