8 February, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm£9
What’s the single most productive way to become healthier, braver and more resilient? Games.
Bestselling author Jane McGonigal is a world-renowned game designer whose debilitating concussion in 2009 led her to discover the powerful science behind gaming and its life-changing ability to aid trauma recovery, improve health, and overcome challenges.
After suffering a brain injury, Jane McGonigal came up with a game to help aid her recovery and battle the ensuing depression she experienced. A quarter of a million people have now played this game to astonishing results: depression gone in six weeks in some cases and even terminal cancer patients reporting that playing the game gives them a sense of control over their own health.
