Including video game addiction in plan of discussion
This symposium will deal with all forms of addiction: drugs and alcohol, gambling, sex and pornography, and digital devices and social networks.
A particular focus of the event will be to discuss the economic factors involved in such phenomena. One of the objectives is to highlight how the poorest are the most vulnerable.
Participants will also try to identify useful methods for people working with addicts.
The speakers and organizers are scheduled to be received in audience by Pope Francis.
