@WHO say ‘Gaming disorder is characterised by a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behaviour (‘digital gaming’ or ‘video-gaming’), which may be online (i.e., over the internet) or offline. #OTalk
Rachel Booth 💚 @OT_rach
@WHO ‘Continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences. The behaviour pattern is of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning.’ #OTalk

@OT_rach On some games there is a pop up after a certain amount of time which tells you how long you’ve been playing, suggesting you take a break, but you can continue if you want to. Generally I just make a mental note of the time and log out around half an hour 🎧 #otalk

@preston_jenny @OT_rach I have worried my son plays too much at times too but he gets so much from it and is not wholly neglecting other things he needs to do (no more than any other 10 year old) so on balance I’ve come to find acceptance of it and see it as one of his meaningful occupations #OTalk

@OT_rach I’ve now got someone leaning over my shoulder tonight, suddenly interested in the conversation. Apparently he does not like to be referred to as a gamer! Asked why? Response: it is cringy (whatever that means!) #OTalk
ᏕᏂᏋᏒLᎩᏁ 🇯🇲🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@OT_rach #otalk I think killing games are a bit like killing movies. I’m not sure if it would encourage gamers to go on killing sprees. What I don’t like is when you hear of children 8-10yrs playing 18+ games. I don’t think that’s cool 👎🏾
Prof Diane Cox @dianecox61

Amelia Handy @AmeliaHandyOT
Personally I think there is a “dark side” to all occupations, if you participate in an activity to such an extent that you are neglecting other meaningful activities/ it is causing mental or physical harm to yourself, then I suppose it could be considered an addiction #otalk

@preston_jenny @Lauren_OT @OT_rach I did try and join my son in game play some years ago out of a desire to play with him and show interest. Safe to say I was not a natural at Minecraft, and he declined my offers to play with him again. 😂 #OTalk

@OT_rach I have used gaming to support remotivation in younger service users in an inpatient setting, but have always attempted to prioritise activities that develop more productive routines in the long run #OTalk

@OT_rach I have used it informally (before OT) as a way of engaging children in social interaction and encouraging use of communication aids but not as a therapeutic intervention since qualifying. I’ve never had access to the resources or a suitable environment #OTalk
