4 Part Series on Youtube - Excellent

I found this while checking out another forum. This is a great explanation of the dynamics of gaming addiction/compulsion by a psychotherapist who was a gamer.

I checked out the website and she provides a link to wowdetox. I think she would be a great resource for this group.

Here are the URLS:

Really good stuff and well worth watching. I have been in communication with shauvan a couple of times (you can e-mail her through her website). She has been producing a documentary film on gaming addiction and should be about finished with it. I know she interviewed Liz at one point. She also has pretty good connections and seems to be respected in the game creation industry, so if anyone can help get the gaming companies to voluntarily design games for healthier play, she would be the one to do it.

This is so well done and clear. I think she captures much of what people here have been reporting. The power of this piece is that she herself has played, seen her children play, and I take it have had clients in trouble with games.

Intelligent, articulate, and insightful. I have emailed her in hopes of pursuing more information on the research she refers to..
