Meet Michael Jacobus: Digital Detox Expert and Motivational Speaker
Michael Jacobus is the founder of highly acclaimed Reset Summer Camps which help youth detox from electronics in a fun and fully immersive clinical program hosted on a university campus. Participants are able to detox from their screen addiction and learn how to self-regulate, as they participate in individual and group therapy. Combined with the Life Skills program, the camp cultivates responsibility and builds self-confidence, so campers will be prepared to handle their real-world obligations when they return home, educating parents on the importance of healthy digital routines to maintain the detox benefits and developmental progress made during the camp.
Michael leads a team of staff that includes experienced youth-development professionals, clinical interns, registered nurses, and private-practice mental health clinicians who work daily with those suffering from problematic use of technology, including gaming addiction and digital media overuse (DMO) of Social Media and Information Overload.
Michael lives near Orange County and is an internationally recognized author, child-development specialist and youth camp professional. He is the author of two books for the camp community; The Camp Director’s Survival Guide and Insights & Inspirations which have helped many families and kids capture the magic of extended time away from home. He also launched a great app Life Skills to help parents stay connected with teens and guide them with daily suggestions to improve their REAL life and relationship skills!
