As video, online and mobile games become more prevalent in our lives, so too has addictions related to games. Many have noted an uptick of problematic video gaming/ screen use during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Globally, as everyone are increasingly required to use screens while sheltering-in-place, for everything from attending classes to staying socially engaged, the line between normal and problematic technology use is further blurred. This workshop will discuss trends of problematic gaming, present signs and symptoms of problem gaming, and share existing resources to address this emerging health issue.
