Some schools asked us if we have any programmes for parents with regards to their children's gaming habits. Here's our webinar that is focused on this very challenge. A full solid 3-hours with our COMEBACK Psychologists and Esports Coach, we go in deep to the topic of understanding of games, gamers and game addiction. This is also suitable for Educators and School counsellors who have an interest in this topic. For this Parents Webinar, we seek to equip parents with frameworks to help parents better understand games, gamers and game addiction, which we termed game dependency. With better understanding of games and your child’s gaming motivations, parent-child communication and relationship can be improved. Developed from the understanding of a youth's brain development, various communication strategies will be examined. We will also do a brief introduction to neurofeedback intervention that is noninvasive and non-medication-based, that can help programme the brain to achieve greater mastery over ineffective or dysfunctional behaviours, i.e. game dependency, poor relationships, etc.
