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.


I'm always on the lookout for accessible resources that are useful for young people and their families/caregivers and professionals who work with families.

Below are some links to a great blog series from the creators of Bark, an app for families and schools that can monitor and alert adults about risky or concerning activity on a young person's smartphone.

Whilst the Bark app appears to currently only be available in the U.S, their team runs an interesting blog series with videos and linked resources for how adults can teach young people about digital citizenship, internet safety and help them set healthy tech use habits.

I've linked some of the articles below I've found most useful and hope you find them useful too!
