Forwarding from Lynn to the Women in Game Dev list, as I think a few
might have some ideas here too.

Indeed...America's Army game...I wish they'd involved more
psychologists to help prep for the possibility of PTSD while they
recruited soldiers. I can't even begin to imagine the psychological
toll on some. Part of me wonders if games might not further
traumatize but with the proper psych help it could be used as a
desensitization tool. I just wish we lived in a world where such
trauma didn't have to exist...

>If you scroll down on my blog, you'll see some video demos of what I worked

>Ubiquitous Computing classes. The demos are on a wall-mounted touch screen,

>

>I also think that therapeutic games designed for interactive touch-tables

>would be an effective, relatively inexpensive way to assist young people

>coming back from Iraq who have PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and

>those who have TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).
