Passion or addiction? (Rune Kristian Lundedal Nielsen)


Passion or addiction? -
Game addiction in a framework of love

Video game addiction is a growing research field around the world, but what does it mean to be addicted and is it possible to love video games without being labeled as an addict? 

This workshop will introduce participants to the science behind the concept of video game addiction, the origin of its diagnostic criteria and its fundamental concepts. Participants in the workshop will get a chance to fill out a video game addiction questionnaire and see whether they qualify for the diagnosis. Video game addiction is undeniably a controversial topic; some researchers believe it to be the biggest threat facing young people today while others do not event believe it exists. This workshop will give participants a chance to discuss all aspects of the question.
