Welcome to The Mental Breakdown and Psychreg Podcast! Today, Dr Berney and Dr Marshall interview Silja Litvin, a clinical psychology doctoral student from Germany.
A child of the digital generation, Silja was looking for ways to use apps and social media to help people suffering from mental issues. She went on to start a company, PsycApps, and created a psychological mobile app that helps users identify and self-manage depression. Building on this idea, she undertook her PhD thesis, thus ensuring it to be evidence based and ethically sound. Now she is venturing into the world of AI, gamification and chatbots to find a way to be able to help people help themselves, launching the beta of her emotional fitness game eQuoo in New Zealand and Australia. eQuoo will be available on all mobile platforms in the United States and the United Kingdom in late May.
Dr Berney and Dr Marshall are happy to announce the release of their new parenting e-book, Handbook for Raising an Emotionally Healthy Child Part 2: Attention. You can get your copy from Amazon here.
