In today’s world technology serves as both a witness to and a catalyst for collective trauma. Over 97% of teenagers in the US use social media and most are negatively affected by it. Artificial intelligence, social media and instant connectivity can increase the speed of dissemination of distressing events and amplify polarization, thus contributing to collective stress. Together, we navigate this complex landscape, acknowledging the dangers of false self and fake news, empathy fatigue, and divisiveness that are all common in our digital age. How might we become able to use these same technologies to foster empathy, and provide platforms for communal support?
