Join Heather T. Forbes and listen in to
her Ask the Expert series with
Robert Scaer, M.D.
Robert Scaer, M.D. is Board Certified in Neurology and
has been in practice for 33 years. More recently, he has
been involved in the study of traumatic stress its role in
physical symptoms and diseases. He is the author of
"The Trauma Spectrum" and "The Body Bears the Burden."
This discussion with Dr. Robert Scaer and Heather T.
Forbes, LCSW, centers on the connection of childhood
trauma and the addictive nature of video games. Dr. Scaer
discusses how trauma, at an unconscious level, can heighten
a child's arousal system, creating the child's need to seek
extreme excitement and pleasure. Video games meet this
need and give children that "rush" their bodies are craving.
This discussion will validate you...your child's reactions
really are extreme. You're not being dramatic when it
feels like your child is going to die if he has to stop
playing instead of making it to the next level of his game!
