A bit about BigCat:Play therapy means a lot to me because I believe it is the best and only way for children to express and learn about their emotional selves. Technology has been a creative medium for connecting and speaking the child's language but also providing an immersive environment for optimal growth and development. Currently, I work with diverse ages and populations as a mental health clinician. There are various approaches and interventions of play and there is no wrong or right approach as long as it is evidence-based and shows progress for the client. My ultimate goal as a therapist would be to not have a job! It sounds odd but the reason is if there were no clients for me to see then no one would be struggling.Below are links mentioned in the episode:https://www.a4pt.org/https://www.sandtrayplay.com/https://www.heidigkaduson.com/Subscribe and write a review, we're looking to improve our show!_Life and Gaming_ Our Twitter Our YouTube Our Website Looking forward to the next episode!

With a basic understanding of these topics, we analyze video game addiction versus general addiction disorders.Although the DSM (The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) currently does not recognize gaming addiction as a mental disorder. The World Health Organization defines a gaming disorder or addiction as.."a pattern of gaming behavior (“digital-gaming” or “video-gaming”) characterized by impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences."
