Digital Enhanced Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies for Children, Adolescents and Parents

Bullying is a common phenomenon among children and adolescents. Whether they are humiliated, offended, excluded from common activities or perhaps even beaten, victims often believe that they have no power over the situation, feel hopeless and ashamed to ask for help.

The Friend4Me project aims to develop a chatbot (conversational agent) through which we can offer personalized and scientifically validated psychological services in an attractive and accessible format to young people who are victims of bullying.

More specifically, Friend4Me will provide a safe space where young people can talk to a chatbot about negative bullying experiences and learn strategies tailored to their needs to better manage their emotions and behaviors, so that they become more resilient. in the face of harassment.
