The work of the play2PREVENT™ Lab is aimed at forging collaborations and partnerships between scientists, educators, videogame designers/developers, community based organizations and others.

Our goal is to develop innovative evidence-based educational materials and targeted videogame interventions for risk reduction and prevention in youth and young adults.

play2PREVENT™ builds on the evolving and expanding area of “serious games”, a field defined as videogames or versions of videogames intended for use outside of entertainment, for example, in the fields of education, health, well-being, and social intelligence.
