Description

Eligibility

This is a half-day course for people working with children and young people in West Sussex.

This course is being delivered through a partnership between Coastal West Sussex Mind, YMCA Downslink and West Sussex County Council.

Course Overview

This half day workshop explores the use of computer gaming in therapeutic work. Whilst gaming is often seen negatively it can be a very real positive in our clients' lives.

We will explore:

  • the different types of games, gamer personalities, culture and technology
  • how and why gaming can become important to someone
  • how to work alongside gaming
  • what can happen if gaming becomes a problem.

The workshop will involve group work, activities, case studies, therapeutic interventions and discussion.
