Fabulous article! I have found that having an understanding of gaming has been very beneficial to my private practice at http://counselingmodesto.com I don't advertise for addictions or "gamers." I just build gaming questions into my assessment. Understanding some of the personality's drawn to certain types of gaming scenarios. I love finding out if it is a great stress reliever, a major source of social support, etc. I also help couple's navigate when going through life transitions. When couples go through changes like having children, sometimes hobbies like gaming, shopping, etc. can just get a bit out of balance and couples need a safe place to explore and find a way to talk about constructively. There are even some fabulous counselors who are in second life providing online therapy! Keep up the great work! Maybe you can make it out to the West Coast to give your fabulous training over here! I think everyone wants an easy way to categorize things as good OR bad. Gaming, Facebook, SmartPhones, TV, running, working out... all of these things could be good or bad for a person. It depends on SO many factors!
