Parenting Challenge Workshop: Communicating & Engaging Gaming Youths at Home through Role Play May 2022

 

This 2-hour workshop is a follow-up to our Parents Webinar: Understanding Games, Gamers and Game Addiction. During the Webinar, communication strategies and theories on games and gamers were introduced. The application of the strategies and theories in a real-life family situation is not easy. Role play is a good tool to help contextualize the strategies and theories for home situations and deepen the adoption of strategies by reenacting them in a safe environment. For example, role play is used to rehearse the diffusion of difficult situations to prevent confrontations that can jeopardise parent-child relationships. COMEBACK psychologists will put out common scenarios in families and through role play to illustrate the application of the strategies and theories discussed.

The sessions will be conducted by COMEBACK Psychologists Nicholas Gabriel Lim and Poh Xing Yong.
