ABOUT THE SERIES:
Video games like Fortnite are more accessible than ever. And one in 10 kids is estimated to show signs of gaming disorder. So we sat down with Dr. Judith Joseph to discuss everything you need to know about this disorder. Dr. Joseph walks through how gaming goes from a hobby to a disorder, how the reward system of video games can be so addictive, and how to spot the warning signs of video game addiction. She ends the series by providing simple at-home strategies for preventing gaming disorder, how to seek treatment for it, and how to tell if a loved one is recovering from gaming disorder. This series will not only help those facing gaming disorder, but will also go a long way in helping prevent video game play from becoming an addiction in the first place. Welcome to the MedCircle original series, “Video Game Addiction: Pressing Pause and Preventing Its Onset.”
