Digital Games May Help Some People Manage Anxiety, Depression, PTSD

The Wall Street Journal (5/6, D4, Chen, Subscription Publication) reports that a digital game called SuperBetter, which will soon undergo a scientific study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, may help some people manage anxiety and depression. Other digital games and apps are being developed for the management of post-traumatic stress disorder. Nevertheless, such games are no substitute for psychotherapy, according to Carol Landau, PhD, a professor of psychiatry at Brown University’s Alpert Medical School.
