With help from medical professionals and students from the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University, the Allegheny Health Network developed the TF-CBT Triangle of Life app. The game is intended to help children who have experienced trauma act out the skills they have learned from sessions with a therapist, in the hopes of reshaping their thoughts and feelings.

With a story that takes place in the jungle, children are guided to foster positive relationships between animals like lions, fish, giraffes and monkeys. Since negative thoughts and feelings have a huge impact on how a child perceives the world around them, this free-to-download game was specifically designed to help therapists aid young victims of all types of abuse lead better lives.
