Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (or CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that “focuses on modifying dysfunctional emotions, thoughts, and behaviors by interrogating and uprooting negative or irrational beliefs.” It is often used in individual, couple, and group therapy sessions. Playing CBT is a therapy game that helps support and facilitate treatment for children and adolescents.
According to Playing CBT’s website, the game is a unique, effective tool for developing more flexible physical, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral reactions and habits. The game features cards with carefully chosen questions and has several options for diverse therapeutic goals, ages, and developmental stages.
