Reviews and few non-controlled studies showed the effectiveness of
several specific designed computer video-games as an additional form of treatment
in several areas. However, there is a lack in the literature of specially designed
serious-games for treating mental disorders. Playmancer (ICT European initiative)
aims to develop and assess a serious videogame that may help to treat underlying
processes (e.g. lack of self-control strategies) in Eating and Impulse control
disorders. Preliminary data will be shown.
Serious games, mental disorders, cognitive-behavioral therapy
