    Introduction : How to read this book -- I. How devices are impacting us : There's no such thing as IRL -- This applies to you (And me and every other person) -- Living outside our skin -- Our bodies and brains on tech -- Technology and relationships -- Technology and the self -- II. Moving with intention toward a grounded self : The fertile ground of idle time -- Cultivating an internal locus of control -- III. Telling ourselves the truth and finding a new balance : Habits and norms -- Assessing our technology use and making adjustments -- Spotting points and the fiery life -- Getting to decide (And being cheered on for doing so!) -- Appendix : Discussion questions and suggestions for further exploration.
    With current statistics suggesting that the average American over the age of 14 engages with screens upwards of 10 hours a day, the topic of our growing dependence upon technology applies to nearly everyone. While the effects differ at each point of development, real changes to the brain, relationships, and personal lives are well documented. Deviced! explores these alterations and offers a realistic look at how we can better use technology and break away from the bad habits we’ve formed.
    Using personal stories, cutting edge research, and anecdotes from youth, parents, and professionals, Dodgen-Magee highlights the brain changes that result from excessive technology use and offers an approach to the digital world that enables more informed and lasting change and a healthier long-term perspective. Given that the reader is living within a culture of ever-changing and advancing technologies, Deviced! is written in such a way that its contents can weather the constantly changing digital landscape by focusing on the concepts of honest assessment and healthy boundary setting rather than on specific technologies or platforms.
    Deviced! offers a mindful approach to assessing current technology use, breaking bad habits, setting new norms, and re-engaging with life with renewed richness and awareness. (Publisher)
