Dr. Michele McDowell is a Child and Educational Psychologist with over 18 years of experience of offering well researched, effective strategies to parents and teachers in order to support children who are experiencing a range of difficulties.
In the last 5 years she has experienced a significant increase in cases involving children experiencing excessing gaming behaviour and consequentially; educational and social emotional problems. Both parents and teachers frequently query how they can find out if a child has a gaming problem and what they can do about it. Dr. McDowell has had experience of helping parents to identify children’s problematic gaming behaviour and provided parents with successful strategies to effectively manage their children’s gaming behaviour and help them to identify possible reasons for the excessive gaming.
The Life After Gaming group programme acknowledges that parents may be feeling overwhelmed and out of their depth, struggling to understand how the problem arose and what they can do about it. Research has indicated that group support is effective in many ways; primarily because it makes parents feel like they are not alone in feeling the way they do. Dr. McDowell expertly uses up-to-date research to provide techniques and strategies for parents to use with their children to stop excessive gaming behaviours and create healthy alternatives.
On the The Life After Gaming group programme you will discover how to stop excessive gaming and reduce the harmful effects of excessive gaming.
