REBOOT: Reclaiming Your Life in a Tech-Obsessed World

by Elaine Kasket

Technology affects every interaction, shapes our identities and constantly hijacks our attention. So how can we reclaim our power and feel less helpless at every stage of our lives?

In a world full of algorithms, addictive apps and data-driven adverts, it often feels as if the digital environment is determining our behaviour. We trace our steps, track our kids and share our lives online, without really knowing whether this technology is serving our best interests - or those of the people we love.

We speak as though technology is a powerful, unstoppable force and we are the victims. 'What is this technology doing to us?' we ask. But are we as helpless as we assume?

In Reboot, leading psychotherapist and cyberpsychologist Elaine Kasket offers a novel approach to understanding technology's role at every stage of our lives. Journeying from digital gestation to the digital afterlife, through infancy, adolescence and adulthood, Kasket connects the dots between our technology usage and the challenges it poses to our identity and development, and to our relationships and privacy.

Via discussions of 'sharenting', surveillance and social media, Kasket reveals how we consistently underestimate our power to shape our relationships with and through technology. She invites us to question the auto-pilot approach that many of us adopt and instead move forward in a more deliberate, mindful and empowered way.

Come away curious about why you use technology the way you do, clear about how those choices are really working out and with the tools to reclaim your life in a tech-obsessed world.
