Psychotherapist, PBANZ, NZAP

Drawing on his personal experience as a gamer, James discusses why people game and the different types of games.

He also explores problem gaming, its diagnosis and treatment, arguing that there is a continuum of gamers from 'high engagement' to 'addiction' who may need different approaches to treatment or support.
