Recently I had the pleasure of appearing on the Dr. Denise Show for a deep discussion about the effects of quarantine and gaming addiction.
We discussed topics including:
- Strategies to overcome gaming addiction
- Recent trends of burnout in esports
- The 4 types of gamers and their personalities
- How companies leverage neurostyles to hook gamers
- Risk factors for gaming problems
I really enjoyed the discussion and think you will gain insights from it. Dr. Denise is not only a MD but also a mother and I had the pleasure of meeting her and her son in Manhanttan Beach a few years ago.
One of the topics we discussed was the risk factors that make someone vulnerable to developing a gaming problem.
Did you know that it is rare that gaming issues are not linked with underlying mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression and ADHD? That is an important reason why it is crucial that you work with professional support when dealing with gaming issues.
Please find some options for you in our professionals directory. Many are available remotely as well if you do not have a local option.
I am continuing to work hard to find and train more professionals who specialize in working with gaming issues. If you are or know of anyone who specializes with gaming, please have them reach out to me.

Hope everyone is having a good day and is safe out there. Please be kind during this time. (And well, all the time!)
