I am posting here to seek participants for a study on RPG and MMORPG-based problematic gaming.
I am a Master of Counselling Student at Athabasca University. For my thesis, I am studying problematic gaming (i.e. gaming addiction, gaming disorder), to better help counsellors and professionals understand and support people who are struggling. My focus is on players' connection with their in-game avatars. I also have personal experience of gaming addiction, which led me to the research.
I am looking for 5-6 individuals to have roughly one-hour interviews with. If this is something that you can assist me in, I'd be most appreciative. Participant identiy will be anonymized in my study and you will have the opportunity to retract anything you do not want published.
Please email me at email@example.com if you would like to participate, for more information, or with any questions.
