According to CBT models, negative self-talk maintain psychological difficulties such as low self-esteem. Such negative self-talk, ultimately leads to negative view of oneself. Furthermore, it intensifies negative mood and often provokes feelings of depression.

GGDE was developed in order to provide an accessible CBT training platform. The apps allow individuals with low self-esteem to better deal with negative self-talk:
(1) increase individuals’ awareness of negative self-talk.
(2) train individuals’ to better identify and challenge negative self-talk.
(3) increase individuals’ access to neutral and positive self-talk.
(4) increase the automaticity of the above processes.

To further strengthen learning of supportive self-talk, each level the player completes is followed by a small memory game in which one has to identify a supportive statements that appeared in the previous level.

Training using this application, allows for gradual, steady learning of more adaptive self-talk. Break the vicious thought cycle and maintain higher self-esteem and better mood.
