With games such as League of Legends, Fortnite, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, youth, and young adults are often competitors or viewers of these popular games through E-Sports tournaments.  In addition, within the last few years, sports betting has become legal in 32 states, including all the Central East PTTC states. These activities are heavily advertised through billboards, television, pop-up computers, and cell phone ads. With the growth of video gaming and gambling activities in communities across America and online, how does it affect youth and young adults?  Middle school, high school, and college students can be at risk of being negatively affected by gaming, gambling, and activities that include a mix of both in their daily lives. This webinar will discuss the prevalence and trends in youth gaming and gambling and the warning signs of problems with these activities.  An overview of strategies to prevent youth problem gaming and gambling behavior and resources for help in Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, D.C., and Pennsylvania will be presented.


At the end of this training participants will be able to: 

  1. Recognize youth gaming and signs of gaming problems in youth/ young adults.
  2. Describe youth gambling and signs of gambling problems in youth/ young adults.
  3. Distinguish how youth/young adult gaming and gambling behaviors connect.
  4. Identify problem gaming and gambling prevention strategies implemented in West Virginia, Delaware, and Maryland.
