This course proved to be very informative from the point I started, which was having a broad perception of gaming and how it can lead to addiction. I now have a better understanding of why some individuals game as part of their lives while others let gaming BE their lives. Many parents I meet tell me they are at a loss to know how to control or monitor their children's gaming; leading to aggression and behaviour problems. I still can't say for definite what or where is the tipping point where normal game use becomes addictive, but I can talk it through with parents with more confidence and better informed advice. The personal accounts from young people and parents were invaluable in giving a deeper understanding in the context of family units. All in all, a worthwhile training module for professionals and parents alike.

This was an excellent course. It took you through all the stages using people with real life stories on how gaming has affected their life. It was thought provoking and in my position of a primary teacher, it resonated with conversations with parents. I was one of those people who said you are in charge, pull the plug but I now understand this is not the appropriate course of action. Fortnite has had an adverse effect on children's wellbeing and I now feel I have more tools to help support parents.
