Video Games Addiction Couples Therapy Group

Don’t Let Video Games Addiction Ruin Your Marriage

By

Updated March 22, 2012

While services for people with video game addiction and their partners are uncommon, a therapy group for couples affected by Internet and video games addiction is now available in Seattle.

The group follows the psycho-educational model, in which teaching is the main group activity. The group setting also provides the opportunity to meet with other couples who are struggling with the impact of compulsive computer use on their relationship. People typically find this supportive, and they feel less isolated knowing they are not the only couple going through this problem.

The content of the group sessions covers:

  • Communication problems caused by Internet and video game addiction
  • How to rebuild damaged relationships by recognizing the predictable patterns that contribute to the addiction
  • Understanding how addictive behaviors interfere with intimacy
  • Learn the skills required to have a satisfying relationship

The group is facilitated by Dr. Hilarie Cash, a co-founder of Internet/Computer Addiction Services, and Anna DiNoto, who is currently studying for her doctorate in clinical psychology with a focus in video game/Internet addiction at Argosy University in Seattle, Washington.

Fees: There is a fee of $25 per session.

For more information contact Dr. Hilarie Cash and Anna DiNoto at Internet/Computer Addiction Services, 16307 N.E. 83rd St., Redmond, WA. 98052.

Telephone: (425) 861-5504
