ETC project game received an honorable mention PEACEapp competition

ETC project from the spring 2014 semester, Team Transcendence‘s game TF-CBT: Triangle of Life, received and honorable mention in the United Nations Appliance of Civilizations PEACEapp competition.

The Transcendence team members of Etaba Assigana, Eric Chang, Seungsuk, Cho, Vivek Kotecha, Bing Liu, Hanna Turner and Yan (Rock) Zhang, augmented the Trauma-Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy process by creating a game to help teach children about the Cognitive Triangle consisting of thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and how to replace their negative thoughts with positive ones in order to improve their lives.

The project instructors were Mike Christel and Scott Stevens and had Allegheny Health Network as a client.  The team hopes to publish the game to the App Store soon. The team also presented their work at CHI PLAY in October.

Congratulations to Cho, Eric Chang, Bing, Hannah, Vivek, Rock, and Etaba!
