The Camden Conference presents a screening of the short film "Like" with a Q & A following with Catherine Steiner-Adair on Saturday, October 19 at 2pm at the Rockport Opera House. More than 2 billion people have smartphones today. And we check our phones on average an incredible 150 times every day.

Donations are appreciated.  Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair is an internationally recognized clinical psychologist, school consultant and author of the award-winning book, The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age…
