1on1 mentoring helps gamers find a healthier relationship with gaming
The biggest barrier to helping a gamer play more intelligently is that they don't want to engage with people who don't truely understand their passion. Our mentors share that same passion. The defensive walls come down so we can have real conversations.
Mentoring sessions allow us to be able to work 1on1 with a gamer to optimize their time so that they become more engaged in their real life. By using Motivational Interviewing techniques and the GameAware methodology, our mentors have the skills to help gamers make the decision to make healthy changes. When we hop into a game with a gamer, we break down their motivation to play, how video games have become such an important part of their lives, and whether or not that is helping them meet larger, more important needs.
Mentoring is the best way to get buy-in to the idea of changing their habits, and fighting less about gaming at home.
