    "Attended the GameAware PD recently and found this very helpful in working with many families where device use and gaming have become problematic, causing conflict and impact on general functioning. This training gave me further insight into the reality that exists for gamers with all of the pros and cons. I love the structure of the program from the gamer buy-in to being able to regulate their own use and see the benefits of reflecting on and changing their habits if this has become intrusive in their lives and with their relationships. I found the information was factual, objective and evidence based. The program itself appears to be a solid structure to assist with behavioural change. I'm looking forward to commencing this process with a young man with Autism Spectrum Disorder very soon. Would certainly recommend others taking advantage of this training opportunity."
