Developed, tested, and proven at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Mightier is a bioresponsive program that harnesses the mind body connection to build emotional regulation in its players. The program accomplishes this through the most significant occupation of the child - PLAY!! Children have fun playing the games, and enjoy practicing strategies for self control.

We’re not here to talk….  We’re here to play.

How does Mightier fit into my practice?

Professionals are integrating Mightier in combination with other evidenced-based techniques successfully in their sessions across settings. While kids do what kids do best, play, therapists easily establish rapport, and sustain motivation and engagement with this bioresponsive gaming software. To progress through the games, children must repeatedly practice deep breathing techniques, cognitive behavioral approaches, and mind-body connection tools.

The visual feedback from the Mighty gauge in combination with the physical feedback of the heart beat increases a child’s understanding of the mind-body connection. This awareness allows the child to recognize they have control to change their response in the face of a challenge. As children start to recognize their internal cues to stress, worry, or anger, they begin to generalize the use of tools such as deep breathing when confronted with those same cues in a real life situation

We have a growing community of professionals who have purchased the program for use in their practice.   One account can have multiple players, and data isn’t shared between players.   For a limited time, professionals can purchase just one system that allows for unlimited kids to play. Families can choose to practice their Mightier skills at home by investing in their own system.
