Turning One’s Life Into a Game to Address Unemployment
Losing a job and facing long-term unemployment constitute major risk factors for mental health. To prevent the onset of mental disorders during these professional transitions, we developed an Internet intervention based on the “SuperBetter” approach (McGonigal, 2015), that intends to activate the resources of people in unemployment. By bringing together several findings originating from the field of positive psychology, this method offers guidelines that allow individuals to envision their life as a game of which they are the heroes. A randomized controlled trial is being conducted to test the short and long-term effects of this intervention on well-being, and personal narrative of unemployment. Possible implications in the context of the COVID-19 crisis will be discussed.
