Video Game Addiction

Following the World Health Organization's decision to include "Gaming Disorder" as a diagnosis, the Catholic News Agency contacted me for a comment.  You can read the article here.  In short (and as I've said before on this site) video games can cause significant problems for individuals and families, and I'm glad to see the increased attention from the medical community.

Later that week, I was invited back on Morning Air to discuss video game addition with Jon and Glenn.  You can hear the interview here about 45 minutes into the segment.

Video game addiction may only effect a small percentage of players, but it speaks to a larger underlying issue of isolation and loneliness - both of which continue to increase among children and adults.
