When Ethics Meets Well-Being and Mental Health Apps

Moral and Social Issues of Pursuing the Good Life with a Smartphone

The workshop addresses the ethical and social challenges, opportunities and risks posed by apps for well-being and mental health. The speakers will discuss the potential that these apps may have for mental health and how they may also deteriorate one’s relationships with physicians and psychotherapists, endanger one’s autonomy, threaten some aspects of the good life, and undermine our self-understanding.

The workshop will take place at 12:00-18:00 CET on Zoom (details in the program (PDF, 187 KB)).
