Knowing Why and When Our Children Feel Lonely: Implications for Parenting

Thursday, May 9, 2024 1 Iyar 5784

7:00 PM - 8:00 PMCEEBJ Gallery and On Zoom

The Eugene and Ruth Freedman Memorial Lecture

Even though many of our kids claim to be more “connected” with the aid of technology, the truth is more and more of them are struggling with loneliness.  A myriad of recent studies reveals a significant connection between loneliness and a breakdown in physical and mental health and an upturn in poor communication, conflict, anxiety, depression, drug abuse and even suicidality.  Our US Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy reports that loneliness in America currently constitutes a national public health crisis.  

Please join Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Michael Mazius for an hour-long presentation in which he lays out the research and provides several practical ways in which we can help our children, students and even ourselves bypass the traps laid by technology and media and, instead, build deep, meaningful, and lasting connections with each other.

Dr. Michael Mazius specializes in the treatment of children with Attention Deficit Disorder, Academic Underachievement Syndrome, and stress and mood disorders. Dr. Mazius also provides marital and family therapy. He works with school systems providing teacher consultation and speaks to parents on topics pertaining to child development, parent-child attachment and neuroscience-informed parenting. Dr. Mazius practices at the North Shore Center in Mequon, WI and is an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Psychology at UWM-Milwaukee.
