Presently I am working on a project in conjunction with Dr.Gary O’Reilly, a psychology lecturer at UCD. Gary has developed a game that helps children employ Cognitive Behavior Therapy. By all accounts CBT is a highly effective method to aid in controlling negative thoughts. However it is a somewhat difficult treatment to apply to children as it involves very abstract notions about personality and character. The game is a very clever innovation as it places CBT in terms that are intelligible to a young child.
