Celling Your Soul – The Book

In less than a decade, we have totally changed the way we interact with one another. The Millennials and the iGeneration who are the first to be increasingly socialized in a digital world, are now seeing and feeling the unintended consequences. More and more are saying enough is enough. Research shows a population with an exponential increase in stress, anxiety, depression, attention deficit, and obsessive-compulsive behavior.  Our most technically advanced generation has become the most socially awkward.

Celling Your Soul: No App for Life is written for young adults by media and social science professor, Joni Siani. It evaluates the paradox of our love/hate relationship with our digital devices, explains why we feel emotionally disconnected, and provides empowering strategies and simple changes for more fulfilling, balanced, and authentic human connectivity within the digital landscape.

This book is an invaluable read for both parents and educators to understand how digital media is shaping the social skills and mental health of the next generations.
