Professional webinar…Could video games be good for you?

Are you about this coming Thursday the 28th? If so, QUT’s Dr Daniel Johnson, Young and Well CRC Director Dr Michael Carr-Gregg and Youth Brains Trust member Rori Hancock are hosting a webinar on Videogames and Wellbeing: A Comprehensive Review at 4pm AEST.

The comprehensive review will cover the key findings of Videogames and Wellbeing: A Comprehensive Review and discuss the investigation of more than 200 publications. The report uncovers strong links between gaming and positive mental health – challenging the way professionals think about videogames and wellbeing.

Participating in this webinar will allow health professionals and support workers to expand their understanding of the creative, social and emotional benefits associated with playing videogames and, in turn, increase their confidence in discussing gaming with young people.postquote1
