Preparation for Change Group or Individual Therapy
Phase 1: An introductory group where you can learn about why gaming can become addictive and work on motivation and goal-setting. It also explores the role that gaming plays in your life.
Phase 2: Group or individual Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
This involves eight sessions of CBT-based psychological interventions. We focus on your personal life goals and values and explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours that contribute to gaming disorder. We will work on skills in challenging unhelpful thinking styles, managing difficult emotions and making changes to your behaviour.
Four psychoeducational workshops to help understand:
- how disordered gaming can develop
- give insight into the treatment we provide for those that game
- how you can positively influence changes within your family
- explore healthy and collaborative communication within the family.
At the clinic, we recognise that gaming disorder also impacts people beyond the individual gamer.
Parent Support Group
For those parents who have completed the Parent Workshop, we offer an on-going monthly parent support group (currently online). This is a space where parents are invited to share their knowledge, gain insight from other parents and find support in shared experience.
