Video Game addiction is a well known issue that is often discussed. However, within fandom communities, the issue is often ether not discussed about (especially the risk factors, causes, and support) or misunderstood. This misunderstanding also creates many myths around playing video games–to the point where people label others as having an addiction by mistake. Thus, the panel will be an educational lecture and group-discussion around the causes, risk factors, and coping/recovery approaches to the issue in order to provide more understanding to fandom communities and break myths around gaming. So if you or someone you know lives with a video game addiction or if you’re just interested in the topic, then come and learn.
