Risk, Embodiment and Health Technologies

Risk, Embodiment and Health Technologies
A One day workshop hosted by Biosocialities, Health and Citizenship RRG and the SMS network

I will be presenting on the topic:

The Robot Intermediary: Autism Attachment Styles and Machines

My talk will explore ideas of human attachment and the use of machines to help support child and adults with attachment disorders. I explore how machines are increasingly conceived as relational substitutes for those who experience attachment difficulties.
