Traumatic experiences often leave negative after-effects in children. This can cause recurring negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Our client, the Allegheny Singer Research Institute/Disruptive Health Technology Institute, takes these children through a program called TF-CBT, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, to inform and help them recover.Team Transcendence assisted the TF-CBT treatment process by creating a game to augment the therapy. TF-CBT: Triangle of Life (formerly Project Savannah) is a mobile game that teaches traumatized children about the Cognitive Triangle of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, as well as how to replace their negative thoughts with positive ones.
