Hi everyone!

I am doing a study on the impacts experienced by PARTNERS and PARENTS of VIDEO-GAMERS, for a Psychology Honours project at the University of Adelaide.

I would love for you to take part in the survey, if you are a partner or a parent of someone that plays video-games. This survey will take approximately 20 minutes, and you will also go into the draw to win a $50 gift card upon completion of the study! If you would like to take part in the study please follow the links below: 



INFORMATION: This is an opportunity for you to express your opinions, feelings and experiences around your loved one's video gaming behaviours. You are invited to participate in a unique study about video gaming, which aims to investigate the potential impacts that your loved one's gaming has on YOUR life. This study will also allow us to understand the coping strategies you use to deal with any of life’s stressors. You will have the opportunity to view this study once it has been analysed and perhaps understand if any coping strategies can be used to buffer impacts associated with your child or partner's gaming behaviour and generally improve your family environment and relationship functioning.

Who can participate?

Participants must have a partner or child that games regularly (at least once a week), be 18 years or older and speak English.

What will I be asked to do?

The survey will ask general demographic information about you and your loved one and their gaming behaviour and history. It will then investigate any impacts that their gaming has had on YOUR life (including emotional, financial, relationships, work etc). The last section of this survey will allow you to identify how you cope with potential stressors in your life.

How much time will the survey take?

The survey will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Enter a draw to win a voucher. By completing this survey, you will go into the run to win a $50 voucher. You will also be contributing to vital research on parental and partner perspectives on video- gaming.

What will happen to my information?

Your data will be anonymous. Only the researchers will have access to the data and no identifying information will be present in the findings or in any subsequent publications.

This study has been approved by the Human Research Ethics subcommittee in the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide (HREC approval number: 17/54). If you have any queries regarding the study, please contact us at or or our supervisor at the School of Psychology, University of Adelaide: Dr Daniel King,

If you would like to speak with an independent person regarding a concern, complaint, or your rights as a participant, please contact the convener of the Subcommittee, Paul Delfabbro, on: Email:

Thank you, Hannah
