SuperBetter: Positive Gaming

Can games and mobile apps increase well-being?  It has been a pleasure to explore this question with Dr. Jane McGonigal, Rose Broome, and the rest of the team at SuperBetter Labs.  SuperBetter is a web-based and iPhone-based program that uses game design principles to help people accomplish important goals.  In collaboration with Dr. Sara Jaffee, I conducted a randomized controlled trial to determine whether SuperBetter can help people overcome depression symptoms and increase their well-being.
