Rem and Jules welcome a special guest, psychotherapist Mike Langlois, LICSW, to the show!  Mike is an avid gamer and licensed social worker, who has been counseling adults and families for over 15 years.  He is the author of "Reset: Video Games and Psychotherapy" available on Amazon.com and iTunes. We discussed questions from the audience about violence and video games, a mother who's concerned about her ADHD son's introversion and attachment to gaming, what's really happening when your spouse dislikes your gaming hobby, the effect of video games have for troubled youth, and what parents could do to find balance between video gaming and school responsibilities.  For more information about Mike Langlois, please visit http://gamertherapist.com or on Twitter at @MikeLICSW.
