The Relationship Between Playing Games On Bipolar Sufferers’ Emotional Changes?
Hello,. I want to ask for my final project needs. If a bipolar sufferer plays an emotional-themed game (which shows visuals with a variety of emotions) with the aim of being an alternative therapy (so that he expresses what he feels indirectly, becoming media sharing between players), is it possible?
Hello Nafiza Rosa, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I answer your questions sequentially yes.
Until now there have been only a few studies and articles that suspect that certain game play (termed a serious game that is a game that is designed to have therapeutic goals and functions) can help in therapy for people with psychiatric disorders, but have not been specified about the disorder whichever soul can be helped with this therapy, so there is no specific literature that says for certain that playing certain games can be used as a therapeutic medium for patients with bipolar disorder. Since there is no specific literature on this subject, it is not yet known whether the effects are only long-term or short-term effects. But in principle the therapy in patients with psychiatric disorders, any type of therapy carried out in patients with psychiatric disorders including bipolar disorder, either therapy with drugs or other therapies that are currently recommended, will not have the effect in a fast timeframe and must be done in a long time. Alternative therapies that are currently commonly used in the treatment of bipolar sufferers outside of drugs are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) (therapies to help shape a mindset, how to behave and respond to an event or stress faced), psychotherapy / talktherapy, interpersonal therapy (therapy to help form relationships with others), and social security rhythm therapy (therapy to help shape and maintain daily habits and schedules for sleep). If you want to ask more about the therapies that can be done and about bipolar disease itself, you should talk further with a psychiatric specialist (psychiatrist). I hope this helps.
