Parents Seminar – Understanding Gamers, Games and Game Addiction

“My child is gaming too much!” is a common statement we hear from many parents. Gaming has become an integral part of life for many. The concern escalates when at the 72nd World Health Assembly, 194 members of the WHO unanimously agreed to adopt the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11), which includes ‘gaming disorder’ as a recognised disease. The new classifications will come into effect on 1 January 2022. Below is WHO video on Gaming Disorder.

The gamers’ world stands apart from the real world, which makes it extremely attractive. The difference in the gamers’ world and the real world creates a gap between parents and gamers. In this two-part series of Parents Seminar, we firstly bring together gamers and parents in a panel for an interactive session. The second session delves deeper into the basic science behind game design and game addiction.

A gamer is anyone who games. This includes adults and even grandparents who play games like Bejeweled and Pokémon. When adults play games, it is generally not considered too much of a problem. For children and youths, concerns arise. SOOS OIO has been actively looking for ways to mitigate the negative effects of gaming and addiction while trying to harness the positive of gaming. This two-part series for parents are one of our initiatives to bridge parents and gamers.

SESSION 1: GAMING & FAMILY – A PANEL OF PARENTS AND GAMERS

14 Sept 2019 (Sat)
10.30am-1.00pm

We are starting this two-part series with a panel of parents and gamers to discuss how gaming affects family. Like it or not, games are here to stay. Find out more about the different gamer types and their gaming motivations in relation to their Myers Briggs Type Indicator. This can provide much insight to your child’s gaming motivations and type of gamer to better interpret their behaviours. Through conversations with the panel of parents and gamers, we hope their stories and experiences can be references to manage this gaming inclusion, or to some, intrusion, in our families.

SESSION 2: UNDERSTANDING GAMES AND GAME ADDICTION

21 September 2019 (Sat)
11.00am-1.00pm

Why are games so attractive? How do we keep up with the increasing number of games? How can we make sense out of this sea of games?

To prevent drug abuse and addiction, the knowledge about the composite of the drug and its effects helps us frame our perception towards drug. This is the first guard against addiction. Similarly, to prevent game addiction, we need to understand games and its effects on us. Our approach to this topic is first to understand games before going into the psychology of addiction, more specifically to games.

Join Ruth Lim in a journey into the world of games. We will explore the various types of games and game genres that are popular among the young people, breaking down the various components of game design. By understanding your child’s world of games, you might understand your child and their needs to start off conversations and deepen the relationship.

The cause of addiction is not only from the substance, in our case, gaming. It happens when deeper human needs are not met. Join Nicholas Lim to learn more about addiction and “positive addiction” from a psychologist point of view.

Below is an animation about Addiction based on Bruce Alexander’s research about the cause of addiction.
