About this Webinar 关于网络研讨会
We have decided to do another webinar this 2022 due to the unexpected demand in May where 1,000 slots were taken up within 2 weeks. This Parents Webinar will include Mandarin simultaneous translation. This means that participants can choose English or Mandarin for their audio on Zoom.
With the increase accessibility of mobile devices, parents increasingly need to manage your children’s gaming. Games are here to stay and will be part of our lives. Complete embargo of games for your child and youth will mean social and technology isolation. On the other hand excessive gaming can be a very real issue for some gamers. Yet, game dependency, or some termed gaming addiction, is rarely on the clinical radar as a cause or contributor to educational or behavioural difficulties for which psychological services were being sought as compared to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), conduct disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, insomnia, and mood deregulation.
For this Parents Webinar, we seek to equip parents with frameworks to help parents better understand games, gamers and game dependency. With better understanding of games and your child’s gaming motivations, parent-child communication and relationship can be improved. Developed from the understanding of a youth’s brain development, various communication strategies will be examined.
For this webinar, we have 2 invited speakers. The first invited guest speaker is Wil Wells, Creative Director of Level Infinite. He will share with you what goes behind the design of video games and how games can be fun and interactive from the perspective of a video game designer. From the insights of Wil, we will have a deeper understanding of games so that parents know how to navigate this world with our children. The second invited speaker is Alsen Chanamuto from the Centre for Fathering who will be sharing with us the importance of fathers, especially gaming fathers, and your impact and influence on your gaming children as a gaming father and educator himself.
The webinar is facilitated by Pauline Phoon the Founder of COMEBACK, with COMEBACK Psychologists, Nicholas Gabriel Lim and Poh Xing Yong sharing their insights and recommendations.
由于 5 月份我们的家长网络研讨会两周内 1,000 个名额已经爆满，我们决定在 2022 年举办多一场网络研讨会。本次家长网络研讨会将配有中文同声传译。参与者可以选择英语或中文作为你们在 Zoom 上的音频。
这次的研讨会，我们很荣幸的邀请到两位特别讲员。第一位是 Wil Wells，Level Infinite 的创意总监 。他将与您分享电动游戏的基本结构以及从游戏开发者的角度解释电动游戏为何如此吸引玩家。从Wil对电子游戏的知识分享，我们将对电动游戏有更深的理解，给予家长多一些知识与孩子共同度过这青年期。第二位是 Alsen Chanamuto，好爸爸中心 的学校参与经理。身为教育者和喜爱电动游戏的父亲，Alsen会探讨父亲们在孩子电动游戏行为和成长过程中所扮演的重要角色。
这家长网络研讨会由 COMEBACK 创始人 Pauline Phoon 主持。COMEBACK 心理学家 Nicholas Gabriel Lim 和 Poh Xing Yong 将会分享他们的见解和建议。
A big thank you to Zhiying and team at MediaCorp 8 News for doing up such an insightful segment about gaming. They interviewed Pauline Phoon, COMEBACK founder and also Jane Kee (Huiyi) who attended our Parents Webinar this May. The team has condensed the much information that Pauline shared in a very concise manner for the last 2 minute.
非常感谢新传媒新闻部的颜季莹和同事制作了如此有见地的游戏片段。他们采访了 COMEBACK 创始人 Pauline Phoon 和慧仪，她今年五月参与了我们的家长网络研讨会。在最后 2 分钟，制作组用非常简洁的方式浓缩了 Pauline 分享的信息。
