Psychology, Gaming Disorder and Cavill Influencers with Rachel KowertPosted: 9 Sep 2022
In this episode of Safe Space, Rosie chats to Dr Rachel Kowert PhD.
Rachel is a research psychologist and research director for Take This, as well as a creator of content from books to her YouTube channel Psychgeist which bridges the gap between moral panic and scientific knowledge on psychology and games.
We kick off the podcast with important questions such as “What is a Cavill Influencer?” amongst others, and delve into the common misconceptions around key topics surrounding the relationship between mental health and games. We touch on the finer details around how the research field has grown to become more inclusive of games in the past decade, as well as how Rachel is pushing forward positive discussion within academia and beyond.
