A free workshop to help parents understand problematic gaming and identify when a child or young person is at risk and learn proven strategies to help manage healthier online use.
Based on the latest scientific research, Unplugged helps parents communicate effectively with their children about gaming and technology, understand why gamers play the ‘hidden’ dangers and the mental and physical health implications of high levels of gaming. It also provides practical skills to help parents deal with associated problems, such as school refusal.
Presented by Dr Huu Kim Le, a child and adolescent psychiatrist who was awarded a NSW Institute of Psychiatry Training Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in 2015. Dr Le has conducted an investigation at the Institute of Mental Health in Singapore on Internet Gaming Disorder and founded CGI Clinic, a website to increase community awareness on internet gaming.
