Traumatic experiences often leave negative after-effects in children. This can cause recurring negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Our client, the [Allegheny Health Network], takes these children through a program called TF-CBT, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, to both inform and help them recover.
Team Transcendence assisted in TF-CBT by creating a game to augment the therapy. TF-CBT: Triangle of Life is our mobile game that will teach traumatized children about the Cognitive Triangle of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, as well as how to replace their negative thoughts with positive ones.
