CANADA: Program led by drama therapist from Chabad Lifeline to address screen use in tweens



"Screen use has become an unavoidable part of our daily lives. One Montreal study indicated that in 2019, tweens were spending more than four hours a day in front of screens. That number increased during the pandemic as classes moved online and lockdown measures curbed socialization. With kids using screens more than ever before for both learning and entertainment, it can be difficult for parents to know when usage becomes unhealthy.


The Montreal Centre for Learning Disabilities is providing a free 10-week program to help parents to get their kids to unplug. It will consist of interactive, 90-minute weekly meetings that will encourage both kids and parents to explore the addictive nature of screens and its impact.


The program is a collaboration with Chabad Lifeline, a Montreal addiction care centre, and will be facilitated by Linda Aber, certified family life educator and attachment-focused parent coach as well as Bill Yong, youth counsellor and drama therapist at Chabad Lifeline.


Beginning on Jan. 19, 2022, meetings will be held every Wednesday evening from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. until March 23, 2022 via Zoom. While the program is free, early registration is encouraged as space is limited."
