Gaming for Good: Therapeutic Uses of Video Games

As both a mental health professional and a gamer, I’m pleased to share this academic paper I wrote for a graduate course in child mental health counseling during my studies at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. I’m Angela Cook now but it was written under my maiden name at the time.

I did a lot of research for this paper and I’ve been highly influenced by the very positive psychological material about gaming I was able to find.

The mental health field has been far too negative about gaming for far too long. It’s time to, shall we say…change the game.
