NEFESH was founded in 1992, to bring Orthodox Jewish professionals and rabbis together to address mental health issues that we deal with daily on a professional and communal level. The goal of NEFESH is provide an opportunity and vehicle for mental health professionals, clergy, and educators to network and collaborate in meeting our common challenge – to enhance the emotional well being of the community.
Rob will be presenting “Closer Together: Further Apart – The Effect of Digital Technology on Sex, Dating and Relationships.” This multimedia keynote is intended to offer a thought provoking look at extremely current issues as the present today both in the real world and in clinical practice. All areas of practice and general social engagement are being affected by digital technology. Individuals, couples, children/family and the larger community all are experiencing –in real time- this enormous interpersonal shift. This talk is designed to set a tone of optimism and re-evaluation of where we are individually and as a culture in relationship to the technologies that now dominate modern life.
