“From habit to hobby”
Group Programs have been helping families find the sweet spot for gaming for over 5 years now.
Professional development workshops have helped bridge the gap between mental health professionals and their gaming clients, allowing them to connect better and do the important resilience work.
Check out the upcoming events and programs on the calendar:
Group programs and professional workshops aim to give:
Insight into the culture and psychology of video games, and understanding the variety of motivations to play casually or play to excess.
Insight into our gamer’s core mental health and resilience and how to access mental health help if needed.
Sustainable gaming strategies that result in a win-win contract for the family.
Strategies to help gamers use their gaming time intelligently to have fun and grow their skill without overdoing it.
"The GameAware program educates both gamers and parents on the benefits (mastering an activity/ community engagement) and pitfalls of gaming (work-like addiction / disengagement with "real-life'). Our family has benefited from the GameAware program as we were able to develop a strategy to curb our son's excessive gaming, that is flexible, manageable and ongoing. With a welcoming approach, Andrew has developed a program that young adults understand, respect and find success with. If your children have a gaming addiction OR if you think they may develop a gaming addiction, look no further - your answer is here. Thank you very much Andrew. " - Parent
"An amazing program that produces results. The program hits a nerve with my boy who took on board all the teachings and acted on them. I had been trying for years to get him up and active and off the computer but it took this program to actually do it. I still don't know how. The facilitator is a kid whisperer." - Parent
"The program has been very helpful in making me aware of my own behaviours as a parent and the fact I don't push my son to be responsible for his actions. Ultimately change comes from within and he needs to be the one to regulate his behaviour. As a teacher myself, I have found that I even change the way I speak to students in class when they don't do the right thing. I'm feeling better prepared to help my sons move forward." - Parent
