Survey about Serious Games use in psychotherapy in the US

Research Study

Hello AANE,

I am a PhD student from Germany (University Kassel) under the supervision of Professor Christiane Eichenberg from the Sigmund Freud University in Austria.I am doing an international study of mental health clinicians’ and patients’ attitudes towards the use of Serious Games in psychotherapy in cooperation with the University of Illinois in the US. I would be incredibly grateful if you could post or distribute my brief online survey among your members.

Serious Games are computer or video games that go beyond the purpose of pure entertainment, and include an educational component (e.g. promote a healthy lifestyle, train cognitive skills, etc.). We are doing an international survey to find out what patients/clients and mental health clinicians think.

Even if you haven’t used any Serious Games, your views are important and we want to hear from you.

The survey takes about 10-20 minutes to complete.

If you are a patient/client (over the age of 18), please click here or copy the link to start the survey:

Your participation in this study is voluntary. All data will be anonymously recorded and will remain confidential at all times. You can terminate your participation in the survey at any time by closing the window on the screen.

If you have any questions, please contact me ( by email.

This study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through The Institutional Review Board of University of Illinois at Chicago.

Thank you for your support!
