Here at Zynnyme, we are all about making your technology powers work for good, not evil. One of the fantastic things we love to do is use apps in our private practice. So from time to time, we are going to provide a review of an app that we have used and loved.
Today I want to talk about the 3D Brain app. You can find the app for iphone here and for android here. In my practice I utilize a lot of MBSR and mindfulness techniques. Even if you don't use these, you know the research on how you can change your brain. Often I find that clients love learning about their brains and how they work. It is empowering to know what is happening up there in your head sometimes :)
The app features the ability to rotate and zoom around the interactive brain structures. It covers: how each brain region functions, what happens when it is injured, and how it is involved in mental illness. Each detailed structure comes with information on functions, disorders, brain damage, case studies, and links to modern research (quote from company description).
I have a model of a brain in my office, but take it apart and it is hard to put back together and my clients don't take it with them. This is an app you can use in session when talking to clients and you can encourage your clients to use the app on their own phone to learn more about the parts of their brain that are activated during stress, depression, anxiety or whatever their struggles may be.
Best part, it is FREE! We love FREE! So what do you have to lose if you try it, right?!
So, keep checking back or sign up for our newsletter and get our updates on apps that you can use in your practice for not only business but for your work with clients. -Kelly
