This week, we speak with author, public speaker, Harvard-trained addictions specialist, medical doctor, and behavioural science expert, Dr. Shimi Kang.In the episode, Dr. Kang tells host Tracy Giesz-Ramsay about her latest book, The Tech Solution, where she advocates that children are taught to be more mindful of their social media and device use (favouring connection with friends over mindless scrolling). She also explains the neuroscience behind habit formation (What does dopamine actually do?) and how, even though we know what we all need to be happier and healthier (read: community, outdoor play, healthy food, and breath awareness) we can implement these as daily habits in our lives.Dr. Kang graduated with Distinction and Honors in Research from Medical School at the University of Alberta. She later gained frontline experience as a primary care physician while working in Vancouver as well as at a charitable hospital in rural India. She trained in psychiatry at the University of British Columbia and completed a Clinical Research Fellowship at the Addiction Research Program, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard University in Boston. Dr. Kang also examined global health issues at the World Health Organization, in Geneva, Switzerland. Her list of accomplishments is endless (see drshimikang.com/bio!) and we are beyond grateful to bring her words to you!For more, visit CaptureQueue.com or find us on social media (Facebook and Instagram) @CaptureQueue - Thanks for listening!

Parenting Our Future

I think it’s safe to say that all parents have a LOVE HATE relationship with technology!   I’m no different!   Most of us are just trying to figure out how much is too much, and we’re scared it might already be too late for our kids who seem to be hooked on devices.  Don’t fret!  There’s HOPE! Enter my guest, Dr Shimi Kang who is a highly decorated psychiatrist and an expert on the brain and addiction.   In this episode she shares how the brain is impacted by technology, where we are seeing changes in the brain, and most importantly, what we can do about it! The reality is, that in adolescents, we are seeing an increase in anxiety, depression, body image distortion, and addiction.  We are also seeing physical effects with bad posture, back pain, and obesity.  This means we need to be aware of what the possible damages are to our kids so we can correct them.  In Dr. Kang’s new book, The Tech Solution, she shares a plan to help you have more balance in your home with technology and devices and shares a 6 step plan to help you disconnect your kids.  About Dr. Shimi Kang Shimi Kang, MD is an award-winning psychiatrist, researcher, media expert, and international keynote speaker.
