Guided exercises outside therapy sessions as the starting point for the project
Trauma symptoms are often linked to uncontrollable hypo- or hyperarousal activated by the autonomic nervous system. One of the main objectives of therapy is that the client learns to identify and become aware of the changes happening in their body and to find suitable means to regulate their alertness. The aim of the project was to develop an application that would make it possible for the therapist to provide guided regulation exercises outside therapy session. They would help the client understand the mechanisms of trauma symptoms.
Right solutions with the end client’s understanding
At the beginning of the project, Solita’s service designers interviewed therapy and healthcare professionals working in the field of trauma therapy. Based on the data from the interviews, they formed a hypothesis about how the application could best serve clients between their therapy sessions.
