I was second author on ‘Butterfly Lovers: Design rationale of a cooperative virtual reality game for promoting compassion in multigenerational families.’ This article is about a collaborative VR game which was in development at USC’s Creative Media & Behavioral Health Center. I provided content for the literature review, presenting relevant psychological scholarship about games, virtual reality, well-being, resilience, and compassion.
The Well Played Journal is a peer-reviewed publication on video games, value, and meaning published by Carnegie Mellon University’s ETC Press. This special issue on “Meaningful Play and Games for Social and Emotional Learning” was a collaboration with iThrive Games.
