Parents are invited to a presentation on supporting the whole family with healthy ways of engaging with technology during this time of increased reliance on digital tools. Dr. Lindsey Copeland will share strategies families can use to find balance around technology at home and will answer questions. While this talk will be focused on the needs of middle schoolers, parents of students of all ages are welcome to attend.
Lindsey Copeland is a psychologist in Durham. She earned her Ph.D. from Colorado State University in 2013 after completing her clinical internship year at Duke University. She worked at Durham Academy for five years before transitioning to full-time private practice. She does a mix of behaviorally-based therapy, psychological testing, and parent coaching. She especially enjoys working with kids and parents who are navigating issues related to anxiety, ADHD, autism, and questions of identity. She also works frequently with families who are struggling to set healthy digital boundaries - a challenge that has grown more widespread and complex since the pandemic began. In her free time she enjoys baking, painting, going on walks in the woods with her 3-year-old son, and reading fantasy novels with no literary merit whatsoever. She also volunteers for several professional organizations, including the CE Committee of the North Carolina Psychological Association and two statewide programs that work to connect frontline healthcare workers with pro bono mental health care.
