    WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT VIDEO GAMERS?

    SPEAKER BIO

    My name is Boonie Sripom and I'm an artist who fell into psychology. I earned my MA in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, am currently a life coach for artists, geeks, and gamers and the Personal Counselor at FIDM Orange County. Through my 15 years working with children, I noticed how important play and video games were, yet highly misunderstood by adults who didn't participate. There is increasing acceptance with playing video games, however, stigmas permeate the foreground. There are tropes of violent gamers as people who lack social skills or obsessively play until their health suffers. There are lingering threats of taking games away, leaving gamers alone to work through their potential losses. 

    Video games are a sensitive topic, especially for families trying to connect, but don't know how. I enjoy reframing and translating what games can offer players, as well as facilitating insights into how to use games to level up individually and as a family. 

    My favorite game is World of Warcraft, and Minecraft has a special place in my heart. I am part of the Geek Therapy Community online and consult with fellow geeks in mental health to share information and offer support. My YouTube channel has a series related to thoughts on video games. This summer, I lectured on online harassment at UC Irvine's eSports Arena girl's summer camp. There are countless topics to discuss on gaming. This general talk will discuss common stereotypes associated with video games and alternative perspectives.
