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.

Link to article for PTU that contains several published research articles within the main article:

- This article discusses that the more that parents utilize and depend on technology for their phones, they are modeling a lack of compulsive regulation for their teenage children and can create an addiction to the internet

- The article encouraged bonding with teenage children without technology, creating limits on how much internet usage a child can access, and it also highlights that children struggling with problematic internet usage will not make changes if they are not willing to engage independently with it

-One of the research articles highlights that there is not enough literacy  available that can provide information for parents on how to support their children with problematic internet usage
