Expert Forum on Cell Phone and Wireless Risks, 22 June 2015: Presentation by Victoria L. Dunckley, MD

In the next series of posts, we are presenting videos of the presentations made at the Forum on Cell Phone and Wireless Risks to Children, held at the Commonwealth Club of California on 22 June 2015.  These should be viewed by every parent who cares about their children.  Children will be exposed more and more to wireless technology, and parents - and everyone who assists children:  teachers, physicians, psychologists - should be made aware of the impact of this technology on children's mental and physical health and the ways in which exposure can be reduced.

Victoria L. Dunckley, MD is an integrative child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist who specializes in working with children who have failed previous treatments by addressing environmental influences on mental health. A frequent consultant to schools, interdisciplinary teams, and the courts, she is a sought-after expert regarding problematic electronics’ use and the physiological effects of interactive screen-time, and has served as a forensic expert for criminal cases involving tech addiction. She is the author of “Reset Your Child’s Brain: A Four-Week Plan to End Meltdowns, Raise Grades, and Boost Social Skills by Reversing the Effects of Electronic Screen-Time” (2015). 

Dr. Dunckley says overstimulation and dysregulation produced by electronics use mimics or exacerbates numerous psychiatric conditions, that electromagnetic radiation from wireless communications magnifies these effects, and that the growing use of mobile devices in the classroom is a major contributor to the epidemic of mental health issues, learning difficulties, and overuse of psychotropic medication in children. 

Recently named one of America’s Top Psychiatrists, Dr. Dunckley has contributed as a mental health expert for the Today show and NBC Nightly News, and blogs for Psychology Today under Mental Wealth. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine, and currently practices in Los Angeles, CA. In this video, Dr. Dunckley is presenting at an Expert Forum on Cell Phone and Wireless Risks to Chidren held at the Commonwealth Club of California, organized by ElectromagneticHealth.org and Environmental Health Trust.
