|Session Name:||Violence Prevention -- Playing A Video Game Can Make A Difference|
|Company Name(s):||Child Safety Research & Innovation Center|
|Track / Format:||Serious Games Summit|
Video games haven't always been associated with preventing violence against children but a new serious game entity intends to change that. The Child Safety Research & Innovation Center (CSRIC) is a non-profit organization that uses video games to teach children how to respond safety to potentially dangerous situations.
One of the most difficult challenges violence prevention experts have is measuring prevention, CSRIC uses the power of video games to track and measure the child's change in behavior game play by game play - tracking the child's prevention skills. To help bridge the child's learning from the game to the real world CSRIC provides parents and educators with animated vignettes showing the teachable moments with guides these trusted adults can use with children.
