Electronic Gaming Therapy (EGT)

Electronic gaming therapy is a new type of therapy that uses video games and other digital media to help treat a variety of mental health conditions.

It has been shown to be effective in treating problems like anxiety, depression and social phobia. In fact, some studies have even shown that it is as effective as traditional therapy in treating these conditions.

There are several reasons why electronic gaming therapy is such a powerful tool for treatment. First, video games provide an immersive experience that can help break down barriers and discourage negative thoughts. Additionally, video games are designed to be engaging which means that they create experiences that traditional therapy cannot. This makes them not only immersive, but a perfect tool for learning and treatment.

Electronic gaming therapy (EGT) is a form of therapeutic treatment that uses video games as an intervention to help people with a variety of problems. EGT has been found to be effective in treating a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and addiction.

There are a number of different types of video games that can be used for EGT, including action games, strategy games, and puzzle games. The most common type of game used for EGT is the action game, which is designed to help people manage their emotions and relieve stress. Action games typically involve players fighting against enemies or solving puzzles in order to progress through the game.

Though there are many benefits to using EGT in therapy, it is important to note that it is not a cure-all solution and should not be used as such. Rather, it should be seen as an additional tool that can be used alongside other treatments for problem areas.

Many people believe that electronic gaming can be a powerful tool for therapy. The benefits of using this technology in therapy are wide-ranging, and can include increased creativity and imagination, better communication and collaboration skills ,improved problem solving abilities, greater self-confidence, and improved self-worth.

One of the key reasons for this is that it allows people to express emotions and thoughts that they may be hesitant to share in other forms of therapy. It also provides an outlet for creative expression, which can be beneficial in easing anxiety and stress.

Additionally, games can help people learn new skills or strategies, which can be useful in treating anxiety or depression.

There are many studies that have shown the effectiveness of EGT. One study showed that EGT was able to reduce symptoms of PTSD in military veterans by 73%. Another study found that EGT was also effective in reducing anxiety among children with autism.

One study found that e-gaming was able to help people suffering from anxiety, depression and stress disorders. It also helped them improve their moods and reduce their symptoms by up to 66%. Another study found that e-gaming had a positive effect on social interactions and communication skills. In fact, it even helped people with autism improve their social interactions and communication abilities.

Overall, the studies seem to suggest that e-gaming is a very effective treatment for a wide range of issues, both mental and physical. Electronic gaming is a versatile tool that can be used to help address a variety of issues related to mental health. If you’re looking for a way to add therapy into your treatment plan, then e-gaming may be the perfect option for you.

Helping You Help Your Kids

Therapy with electronic gaming doesn’t just help your kids, it helps you as parents in establishing deeper and more rewarding connections with them. Not only do they gain the ability to regulate their emotions through games designed to put them in situations that mimic real-life problem-solving, you will come to understand how your child thinks, feels, and behaves to be able to directly assist them as they transfer skills to situations that arise at home, in school, and in social settings.

Parents meet with our therapists in live online groups once a week to get a deeper understanding of the psychology of behaviour and the specific emotional regulation skills and challenge they will be mastering with their child. Skills are then taught to your child through electronic gaming sessions outside of sessions where therapeutic objectives are completed. Full support, feedback, and progress tracking is provided  by our warm and compassion therapists ensure all objectives are completed.

Your kids will be learning advanced skills in simplistic ways in single worlds that that have been created just for them in addition to new worlds they can play online with their friends.

" My son is a happy child again and I am a happy father. After an event in our lives that affected our family deeply, Darren become very sad and moody. After starting gaming therapy, it was like watching something switch in him. We played in open worlds and bonded in ways previously unknown! I saw him light up and through that he was able to communicate what he was going through, talk to my wife and myself more calmly and sensitively, and even began to help other children manage their own feelings at school. We have our son back and I can't thank the team at Orchestra enough for what they have done."
