Stremble – Kids Stress Relief
Kids Stress Relief is a technology based app to empower children aged 5-12 years old by providing tools that help them develop stress management skills. It is meant to be a prevention intervention and covers topics such as emotion recognition and expression, awareness of body signs of stress, strategies to effectively deal with anxiety and fears. Children are asked to make decisions in different stages of the app, engage with the content, and take responsibility of their choices. A gamification approach is deployed that encourages kids to practice in real life what they experienced virtually through a mechanism of reward to provide reinforcement.
