“Addicted” to…

This isn’t a long blog post but I just had to share this TedTalk from TedTalk Global London last month (June 2015).  The talk is by journalist Johann Hari (yes the one that caused a load of controversy a couple of years ago because of plagiarism). His talk is about addiction and it’s a completely different perspective to one I’ve ever heard before.   I thought it was worth sharing, to get us all thinking…

No I don’t work with drug addicts, but I do work with people who are addicted to behaving in certain ways.  It’s also made me think about how we talk to and treat children when they get addicted to gaming/ iPhones / food/ sports… and what is underneath it all.
