Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use Community of Interest

The Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use Community of Interest brings together addiction and mental health service providers, researchers and subject matter experts in the fields of gambling, technology/Internet use and video gaming to collaborate and share knowledge on emerging trends and clinical best practices.

State of the Research: Gaming Disorder (YouTube)

This 12-minute video (Youtube) is a great, accessible summary of the research into Internet Gaming Disorder (IGD).

The presenter discusses the current debate surrounding the diagnosis criteria of IGD, concerns from some researchers and clinicians, along with the corresponding research papers. This is a visual, interactive way of accessing this information that can often feel quite technical and dry.

We cover similar topics and discussions in our Introduction to Problem Technology Use training, a five-week simulated course beginning Sept 26th that you can register for here.
