Instead of a lengthy blog, this month, on my thoughts on gaming addiction, I have decided to provide a recent interview my son Jake, gave for a talk for “Mondays on The Couch”. This is a discussion format within the Bosch Alumni Network which takes place one Monday each month. Experts from their network are invited to their Community Space to discuss a current political or societal topic.

Jake was asked to share his lived experience with gaming addiction and recovery. Following his talk, there is a question and answer period, with experts on the subject, Dr Brian E Wallace and Dr Matthew Pabis. I recommend taking the time to listen to this full discussion, as there is much learning on this behavioural addiction that you may find helpful.

Here is the full video.
