Psychiatrist Examines Effects of Video Game Play on Children
Date:1/7/2009

New Book Explores Psychological, Social, Physical and Educational Issues

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 5, 2009 -- Since the advent of faster game consoles, more realistic artwork and longer game play, two things have occurred in the video game market: it has grown into a record $1.7 billion industry, and the heated debate among the media, parents' groups, law makers, and game companies, over what effect videos games have on children - has gotten even hotter.

A new book, Video Game Play and Addiction: A Guide for Parents (iUniverse) aims to clarify both sides of the controversy, while offering the definitive assessment of video games' impact on children, including on their physical and emotional health, and educational and social development.

Written by Dr. Kourosh Dini, a Chicago-based psychiatrist known for his work with children, adolescents and adults, Video Game Play and Addiction provides advice for parents overwhelmed and under informed about the games their children play. Dr. Dini's solutions are based on years of personal and professional research, interviews and an almost endless supply of resource material documenting both the good and not-so-favorable.

"Games have lots of benefits, which unfortunately, parents aren't always aware of when the only games they're exposed to are the controversial violent ones targeted to more mature players," says Dr. Dini. "Age appropriate multi-player video games can allow children to learn how other people think - a key aspect of empathy. Games can also help a child become more comfortable with new and ever progressing technology."

Video Game Play and Addiction is the first book of its kind covering children and game play: its author
