We all have our hobbies. Some of us enjoy music and writing, others partake in woodworking or fashion. A growing percentage of Americans spend their downtime playing games on video gaming systems, computers and mobile phones. For nearly 10% of these gamers, the hobby has become more than recreation – it’s become an addiction.

Dr. Stephanie Diez-Morel, from Edinboro’s Social Work Department, joins us to discuss how we can identify and assess gaming disorders and how we can maintain healthy screen habits in a screen-dependent societyt. In addition to her work at Edinboro, Diez-Morel also owns and operates Reboot & Recover – a public charity dedicated to lessening the negative impact of technology in society.
