Mobile Device Application of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Techniques
Halimat Alabi, Bruce Gooch
This paper explores the design and implementation of an anxiety management application for transmission on mobile devices. The application employs cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) methodology and is designed for the 16 to 25 year old demographic. Normally used in face to face therapeutic interactions, the use of a mobile application is unique in that it supplies the patient with just in time access to the therapeutic techniques necessary to manage their condition. We plan to evaluate the efficacy of this the application in real world deployment to a statistically significant user population.
