Gaming Disorder



Almost every person in the world suffering from addiction, someone is addicted to studies, and someone is addicted to food. After several years, the World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Diseases has updated its manual that gaming disorders occur not only in children but also in adults. According to psychologists, people often start playing it to spend time, but when it turns into a habit and becomes a crucial part of life, the person using it is never predictable. You must have seen the Junkies of Pubg, Candy Crush, Ludo, and Temple Run while traveling to colleges or offices.




What is Gaming Disorder -


Gaming Disorder is a kind of game-playing addiction found in teenagers and youngsters. If someone's essential work is being affected only by playing games, it means that he is a victim of gaming disorder. People with game addiction didn't give more importance to their daily activities and relationships, but if any person is addicted to it, then he cannot be declared ill. According to the World Health Organization, the gaming pattern of such a human being needs to be seen whether the game does not affect his daily work, his job, or his relationships. For example - If a person is systematically doing his work and playing a game for 12 hours means he is not an addict, but a person who is playing for 6 hours and affecting his daily work and relationships can be an addict.


Treatment Of Gaming Disorder -


Gaming disorder is a disease in which both psychologists and psychiatrists have to seek help. Many experts believe that if patients will be treated by both experts at the same time, then you can see a big difference in the patients quickly, while according to some psychologists, psychotherapy is effective in many cases. In most cases, cognitive treatment is successful. Play therapy can work for children. It all depends on the level of addiction in the patient.
