Serious Gaming and Interactivity in Interventions for Child and Youth Mental Health
Convened by Dr Theresa Fleming & Professor Bruce Arroll

This symposium will provide an overview of serious gaming & interactivity in internet interventions to promote mental health among children and young people. We begin with an overview of the literature and then shift to analyses of serious gaming components included in leading contemporary tested or in-development projects in Australia, New Zealand and the USA. We shift to consider a game centred approach, where psychotherapeutic components of a commercially available and widely used game are being evaluated. Finally we will close with a panel discussion of future directions and opportunities for serious gaming in interventions for child and youth mental health.
