Video Gaming and Health with Dr. Julie Gowthorpe, RSW

Dr. Julie Gowthorpe, RSW speak with Sean Kelly, Orlena Cain and Alana Cameron onMix97 about video game addiction and whether it’s truly a medical condition that should be classified as a disease, as the World Health Organization plans to officially do in a couple of months.

The WHO has said it will include “gaming disorder” in a June update to its International Classification of Diseases (ICD), defining it as a pattern of behaviour “characterized by impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.”
