Understanding Video Games: A Child Psychiatrist's Call of Duty

Video games are increasingly the pastime of choice for North American youth. Recent surveys indicate that up to 99% of adolescents play video games regularly and research is only beginning to look at the positive and negative long-term effects of video game play. The clinical effect of video games on psychological wellbeing, aggressive behavior, attention issues, academic performance, and sleep habits are considered. Participants leave this workshop with first-hand knowledge of the latest trends in video game culture among youth, and are able to apply this knowledge in their practice.
