The College of Liberal Arts' University Forum lecture series presents Relationships in a Digital Age: Obstacles and Opportunities a talk by Katherine M. Hertlein, Professor of Marriage and Family Therapy, UNLV.
Technology has a transformative effect on our relationships. As we increasingly use cell phones, messaging, social media, and email, we may experience obstacles in our relationships. In this forum, attendees will learn how technology affects the roles, rules, and boundaries in relationships and how relationships are initiated, maintained, and terminated in a digital age. Attendees will also learn how they can use the Internet to solve the problems in relationships caused by the Internet itself.
