Apps and Games for Social Workers and Therapists

This post was first published at MOBILE SOCIAL WORK:

Mike Langlois blogs about online technologies, video games and psychotherapy. Recently he published a list of “Twenty-Three Apps for the 21st Century Therapist” naming some of the usual suspects like Flipboard, Evernote, Dropbox, 1Password and other apps that can make live of social workers and therapists easier. Most beneficial to me were the apps he names for a gaming based approach in therapy with his clients: Plants Vs. Zombies, Zombies, Run! (which I use myself … sometimes they get me), Kingdom Rush, Minecraft, Flowechain, Trainyard and Lavalanche. I asked myself if these games could be used in social work as well. Do you have any experience using video games?

Here at mobile social work we already mentioned a lot of games that can be used in social work. Did you try one of them? Please let me know in the comments.

Education, Research & Development in Social Work & IT After working as an alternative practitioner and psychotherapist in private practice for nearly ten years I stepped over to higher education in 2005. At Saxion University of Applied Sciences I lecture and do research and development in the area of Social Work, Psychology and IT. Currently I'm focussing on merging mobile technology and social work.
