The Electrified Mind helps therapists understand and empathize with patients who rely heavily upon cell phones and the internet for the purposes of self-expression as well as for defensive avoidance of actual interpersonal contact. The chapters by distinguished mental health professionals delineate therapeutic strategies for dealing with the dilemmas that arise in working with children, adolescents, and adults excessively involved with cyberspace at the cost of meaningful human relationships.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This timely volume addresses the impact of modern information technology on the human mind. The incessant company and/or intrusion of cell-phones, the addictive reliance on the internet, and the emergent uses of Skype are brought into consideration to unmask the positive and negative effects of communication technologies on personality development, interpersonal relations, and the conduct of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. The Electrified Mind is on the cutting edge not only of psychodynamic thinking but, more broadly, of our rapidly changing era. This book is informative, engaging,and well worth the read for all health care professionals, parents, teens, and persons interested in the interconnection between our brains, our minds, and our contemporary world.. -- Mary Kay O'Neil, PhD, Canadian Psychoanalytic Association
Each day the rapid advance in electronics seems to bring with it another new technology which can capture and even monopolize the attention of our patients, our children, and ourselves. In The Electrified Mind Dr. Akhtar has assembled a fascinating collection of highly readable papers which examine the developmental, cultural, and therapeutic aspects of this ongoing transformation of the way all of us learn about and relate to each other and the world. -- Paul W. Mosher, MD, Albany Medical College
