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 did an interview with the CBC for a new kids show they will be airing the beginning of September.  It will be an online news show featuring different stories reported by kids.  They interviewed me last Friday for a story they were doing on Fortnite.   The show will feature a boy who did a 22 day cleanse from Fortnite as well as an interview with me about the definition of addiction and the signs of problem gaming.  It was interesting to tailor the messages directly to kids between the ages of 8-13.  I was happy to have the opportunity to convey some information to increase awareness.  I think it is great that they are addressing this subject with this age group.  Hopefully, it is something people can view with the kids in their lives!
