Reply to "Digital Burnout: How it May Impact Perceptions of Problem Technology Use"

"Clinically, either ourselves or those we serve may not be aware of the difference in our use behaviours and patterns from 2 short years ago. In other words, what was once "high" technology use may now be necessary to complete daily tasks."

- Such a great point, Rachel! I think your commentary is spot on. I've been thinking a lot about ways we "measure" or ask clients about their technology use and trying to determine when it becomes harmful. Our latest "Youth, Smartphones and Social Media" page might be of interest so I'll link it here.
