Professional Development Webinars

Webinar Series

Mental health professionals, youth workers and teachers who better understand the culture and psychology of gaming are better equipped to help gamers who need help developing life balance and resilience. Learn where the lines begin to blur between hobby and habit.
Explore the nuance of gaming culture, why games are so appealing, and learn how to help gamers re-frame their gaming into a healthy hobby.
The Webinar Series is split into 3 parts. We aim to cap each webinar at 10 participants to allow for optimal interactivity. Sessions will be approximately 90min in length.
