Trialling the Ni3 UK game with young people
We’ve been thrilled over recent weeks after four years’ work researching and developing, to finally trial our prosocial serious computer game, ‘Danielle’, with young people in seven schools across England.
Based on Ni3 empirical research with survivors and perpetrators of intimate partner violence, the game tackles the issue of how abuse and violence can develop and escalate in young people’s relationships, aiming to teach about warning signs to look out for, and what a healthy relationship does, and doesn’t, look like. The consequences of the abuse play out across the chapters within the game.
We’ve been incredibly grateful for the staff and students at the seven schools we’ve worked with in locations including Yorkshire, Greater Manchester and Greater London, for their enthusiasm in taking part, and their patience with the stringent logistics of operating a randomised control world in the real world, and often unpredictable environment of a busy secondary school setting!
A huge thankyou to all the schools involved!
