The Impact of Technology on Young People Today: Why Jamie’s Farm bans phones…

Speakers
Tish Feilden (Lead Therapist and Co-Founder, Jamie’s Farm)
Jack (visiting pupil from R2K)

A key aspect of the Jamie’s Farm programme is that visiting children must give up their phones. It is one of the toughest commitments young people have to make, and yet by the end of the week, the vast majority of pupils understand why we enforce this rule. In this talk, Tish Feilden – who set up Jamie’s Farm with her son and developed our therapeutic methodology – will explain how modern research demonstrates why it does make such a difference. She will be joined by Jack, who has been through the JF programme multiple times, and can offer his perspective of why it is so valuable. As someone who not only works with disadvantaged children himself, but is at the forefront of modern technology in his own industry of music production, Dan Tsu will offer another valuable point of view as he chairs the talk.
