I have a friend and fellow gamer who is currently studying at Stanford University, and he is inviting anyone over the age of 18 worldwide (and especially Military Veterans and Active Duty service members) to participate in an online study investigating how patterns of playing video games relate to stress and support. Here is his request:
Your honest responses to this brief, anonymous survey will help us to understand the role of electronic games in Veterans’ lives, and it could help researchers better understand the mental health needs of other Service Members and inform new approaches to treatment for veterans. This research project has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of Stanford University and Palo Alto University. Participation will take about 20 minutes and is completely anonymous and voluntary. Clicking on the link below will bring you to the survey where more information is available.
You can also find the study at www.facebook.com/VetsGamesStudy and at @VetsGamesStudy on Twitter.
If you have any questions, concerns, or complaints about this research study, its procedures, risks, or benefits, please contact the Protocol Director, Darryl Etter at 1-(650)-Three Zero Eight-9504 or dwepsyd (at) stanford (dot) edu.
