Envy: How do Social Media & the Wellness Industry Convince us we’re Sick?
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Public Affairs (CCEPA) presents “Poison Envy: How do Social Media and the Wellness Industry Convince us we are Sick?” We’re bombarded online with idealized images of the #BlessedLife, from the perfect vacation to the perfect self. This presentation asks how social media and the wellness industry pathologize our negative emotions to sell us the cure.

SPEAKER: DR. STANLEY KUTCHER – Professor of Psychiatry, Dalhousie University

The 2017-18 CCEPA Lecture Series: SEVEN DEADLY SINS explores the personal and collective consequences of our thoughts and actions as we continue to grapple with age old temptations.

This presentation is presented with the support of Segelberg Trust and the Halifax Central Library
