How it Works

StarStarter Rx’s core therapeutic method is a game-based approach to a decades-old area of clinical and neuroscientific research known as Attention Bias Modification (ABM).

The human brain is uniquely predisposed to subconscious, sub-second processing of faces. StarStarter Rx uses facial expression and gamification to re-train emotional and attentional patterns that can drive persistent feelings of social anxiety.
