RESEARCH

 

Game Therapy UK will promote research into Game Therapy. We will do this by:

  • Curating a database of the available literature and research on Game Therapy and related topics (research papers and studies) and making it accessible to all via our website.

  • Supporting new research into Game Therapy in UK populations. We will do this by offering advice and mentoring to groups wanting to conduct research into Game Therapy.

  • Ensuring all the Game Therapy projects that we support will gather data and evidence and where appropriate disseminate that evidence via publication in journals, symposiums or at a minimum via the Game Therapy UK website.

RESEARCH DATA BASE

A data base of Game Therapy literature will be published here on the website soon. Check back or join our Newsletter and we'll let you know when the database is up on the website and when we add new articles. 

In the meantime here are some links which might prove useful resources.
