Play Time’s Over: Diagnosing Video Game Addiction

CE Credits: 1.50 Speaker(s): Sarah Hays, Justine Mastin, and Larisa Garski In this presentation, we aim to help clinicians gain competence in the context of gaming and geek content - particularly video games. We will take a philosophical look at the theories behind video game play and gameplay generally (ludology), the theory of virtually being (ontology), what video game play really is as a behavior, and the relationships gained both parasocially and intrasocially through play. In parallel, we will discuss the semantic and contextual considerations surrounding addiction. This will lead to a thoughtful conversation addressing the diagnosis of behaviors, symptoms, and accuracy of diagnoses specifically surrounding disordered and healthy video game play. We will discuss potential pitfalls involved in this process including client honesty, comprehensive scope of symptom consideration, billing pressure, and client-family report. Clinicians who attend this workshop will have insight to the culture of video games and how to more accurately address the concept of addiction in context of an evolving digital and technological world.

Raising Vibrant Children: Research Reveals the Critical Role

CE Credits: 1.50 Speaker(s): Martha E. Wadsworth Converging evidence from neuroscience, psychology, and biology shows that a well-developed psychobiological stress response system that supports healthy coping and self-regulation is critical to the development of vibrant children—children who thrive even when faced with difficult life circumstances. Dr. Wadsworth will synthesize current evidence demonstrating the critical roles of stress reactivity and regulation in fostering resilience, present exciting new research showing the biological underpinnings of healthy self-regulation, and introduce new findings from her own research showing the dynamic interplay between the physiologic stress responses systems (e.g., hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis) and children’s cognitive and behavioral coping and self-regulation responses to stress.

Sexual Desire Issues in Couples Therapy

CE Credits: 1.50 Speaker(s): Melissa Fritchle The most common sexual complaint clients will bring to couples therapy is low sexual desire, for one of both partners. And yet, many therapists feel at a loss in how to address this complex issue and the relational fall out that can occur for couples after years of a struggling sex life. In this webinar Ms Fritchle will look at the newest diagnostic features for low desire and talk about the discrepancies in how to define low desire at all. Ms Fritchle will outline a holistic sexual assessment that takes into account the interrelated physical, social, relational, spiritual, and mental aspects that can impact desire. She will address common dynamics you see in couples related to low desire, including non-sexual couples, and how to support them in seeking change.
