Internet Technology & Video Game Overuse on the College Campus Workshop

Event has passed.

Join us for a timely workshop that will address internet and video game overuse among college students.

Current research states 13-18 percent of college students meet the criteria for “addiction” to the Internet. It’s been almost twenty years since Internet Addiction was first studied and described as an “emerging clinical disorder” (Young, 1996) and yet its prevalence among and impacts on college students remains largely undiscussed.

Guest speakers, Tracy Markle and Anthony Riske, from Collegiate Coaching Services and Dr. Brett Kennedy will provide relevant information focusing on:

  • How to recognize problems with Internet and video gaming in the student population
  • Who is at risk
  • Ways we, as an inclusive community, can proactively support students struggling with these issues

The workshop will also give voice to the student experience of problematic internet use and gaming.

To RSVP, please email Kerry.Young@colorado.edu by February 1. Space is limited.
