With a plugged-in 24/7 cyberspace that demands instantaneous response of internet and social networking, many young people have difficulty with self-regulation and modulation. This workshop proposes a tailored strategic approach toward utilizing the natural creativity and novelty that young people have embedded in their developmental make-up to combat this impulsivity or limited access to inner resources. Experiential and specific ways to elicit responsiveness will be explored.
