Interactive Mood Gym- One of My Favorites

Need something new to do with clients? Geared towards a younger set, "Mood Gym" is web based and has interactive quizes and tips related to depression and anxiety. Mature adults can also find this a fun intervention. A clinician guide is also available to help you make the experience didactic. I have used it in my practice- not as a sole treatment but it is a great way for a client to get started with you...especially if they are slow in being forthcoming. During one of your initial sessions, they can share quiz results and scores with you. For curious folks who may need a lift, the format is user friendly and doesn't need a treating therapist to guide. Best of all, it is free.

    Bottom line is that our thoughts control our life, our emotional life that is.
