Play Time’s Over: Diagnosing Video Game Addiction

Speakers: Sarah Hays, Justine Mastin, and Larisa Garski In this presentation, we aim to help clinicians gain competence in the context of gaming and geek content - particularly video games. We will take a philosophical look at the theories behind video game play and gameplay generally (ludology), the theory of virtually being (ontology), what video game play really is as a behavior, and the relationships gained both parasocially and intrasocially through play. In parallel, we will discuss the semantic and contextual considerations surrounding addiction. This will lead to a thoughtful conversation addressing the diagnosis of behaviors, symptoms, and accuracy of diagnoses specifically surrounding disordered and healthy video game play. We will discuss potential pitfalls involved in this process including client honesty, comprehensive scope of symptom consideration, billing pressure, and client-family report. Clinicians who attend this workshop will have insight to the culture of video games and how to more accurately address the concept of addiction in context of an evolving digital and technological world. 2 CEs

The Historical System of Psychotherapy

Speaker: Lindsey Marsh. The focus of this presentation is the evolution of Best Practice and Ethical Standards over time. This presentation will dig into the history of the mental health profession starting with Freud as the main focal point while also briefly looking at some earlier thinkers too. This presentation will delve into the different time eras and the social/political events that were occurring and that impacted people's decision making processes and sense of security/stability. For example, the impact on professionalism, ethical and legal standards as we navigate through the Victorian Era, WWI, WWII, Korean, Vietnam and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). In addition, this presentation will outline the impact of the numerous generations; women's rights; Roe v. Wade ruling; civil rights; mass shootings; technology/internet; long-standing oppression and exclusion of voices of color; and insurance coverage of mental health. More specifically, how these cultural changes affected what 'best practice' looked like for ethical, professional, and legal standards over time. Keeping all of this in mind, this presentation is centered around how we view what 'healthy' is via research in the midst of all this change because all of this has impacted our field and what we have viewed and currently view as good practice. Finally, in the time of Covid-19 and mental health, particularly in a state that has very little legislation regulating telehealth, this presentation will address our need to be pioneers and how we as providers will evolve the our field into the future as we adjust to this new normal. This presentation ends with a discussion on how the context of an era directly impacts the professional standards of practice and the need for examination with regards to the happenings of today that will dictate current best practices. 3.5 CE
