Do you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? Are you interested in new technology to combat anxiety using apps for these devices?
If so, you might want to check out "Anxiety Coach", a new app just released by Stephen Whiteside, Ph.D. and Jonathan Abramowitz, Ph.D. from the Mayo Clinic.
The app is a self-help tool designed to help you overcome anxiety using the techniques of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). IN addition to providing a library of more than 500 activities to conquer fears, the app offers a short self-test to measure your anxiety as well as the ability to design a unique plan to target your fears.
The app developers are both clinical psychologists who sought to create technology that would bring CBT to life; not just relaxation exercises. The program was developed based on results from clinical research and is good for various kinds and degrees of anxiety, including social fears.
The app is available for $4.99 through the app store or iTunes.
Stay tuned; I plan to review and post my evaluation of this app in a future article.
