Jane McGonigal on How Video Games Can Make Us SuperBetter

by Scott Barry Kaufman

Gamers rejoice! Bestselling author, video game designer, and TED talk superstar Jane McGonigal stops by to discuss her research on the positive effects of gaming. Jane is a goldmine of science-backed information on how games can fight depression and PTSD, encourage creativity and help to achieve real-world goals. We get personal as Jane shares the struggle with a traumatic brain injury that led her to create the sensationally popular video game and book SuperBetter, which have helped over 500k people live healthier and happier lives. We also cover topics like post-ecstatic growth, finding your passion, turning your life into a game, the importance of struggle, and well-being.
