Comments: This app is most useful for people who experiencing ongoing PTSD symptoms, to help them with processing trauma and recovery through decrease of intrusive thoughts and emotions. Addressing these strong effects may lead to escape and avoidance which thereby prevents their processing. Overall the app has good presentation, is user friendly and has good content – it is likely to appeal to users and provides a functional treatment tool.
Safety concerns: A cautionary statement is needed regarding who this app might not be suitable for, and a statement about personal safety and risk.
New Zealand relevance: Suitable for a New Zealand audience, but may not be appropriate for cultural groups unless adapted.
