OFF SITE EVENT: The JCC Presents Alexander Kriss, author of 'The Gaming Mind'

This event will be held at The Barshop Jewish Community Center of San Antonio, 12500 N.W. Military Highway, San Antonio, TX 78231

Alexander Kriss, author of 'The Gaming Mind' wants us to explore this question that is on parent's minds. Are videogames bad for us?

In his therapy office, Kriss looks at videogames as a window into the mind. Is his patient Liz really “addicted” to Candy Crush—or is she evading a deeper problem? Why would aspiring model Patricia craft a hideous avatar named “Pat”? And when Jack immerses himself in Mass Effect, is he eroding his social skills—or honing them via relationship-building gameplay?

Join us as we explore this topic and how it may not be as simple as you think.
