Dr Rebecca Lockwood, CNWL’s Consultant Clinical Psychologist has featured in a film about gaming addiction highlighting the impact of gaming on those who suffer from it and the benefits of the National Centre for Gaming Disorders which is dedicated to treating the condition.

She said, “From the people we have seen, we’ve been quite struck on how much of an impact the affect this has on the gamer themselves and the family. Often there is violence and aggression”

“We’re not looking at not abstaining from gaming…but changing the balance of that relationship and introduce some other activities to start to motivate people to go back to school or work”
