Serious Games

2% of survey complete.
Kia ora and hello!

I am a PhD student from Germany (University of Kassel) under the supervision of Professor Christiane Eichenberg (Sigmund Freud University, Austria) and Professor Heidi Möller (University of Kassel, Germany). I am in New Zealand doing a research exchange with Dr Karolina Stasiak from the University of Auckland. I would like to invite you to participate in an online survey about Serious Games.

Serious Games are computer or video games that go beyond the purpose of pure entertainment, and also include an educational component. Some argue that Serious Games can be effectively used in various healthcare settings, for example to train cognitive skills. To give you more information about Serious Games I have included a brief description of two examples.

You can take part in the survey if you are between the age of 16 and 85 and have experienced any form of psychological therapy (i.e. “talking therapy” such as cognitive behavioral therapy/CBT, psychoanalysis, or other forms of psychological counselling).

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

Your participation in this survey is voluntary. All data will be anonymously recorded and will remain confidential at all times. No individuals will be identified. You can terminate your participation in the survey at any time by closing the window on the screen. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete.

If you have any questions or are interested in the final results, please contact me ( or my supervisors by their email ( or at any time.

By completing the questionnaire you agree that your answers are anonymously recorded and evaluated for the purpose of the study.

This study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through The Health and Disability Ethics Committees in New Zealand.

Thank you for all your help!
