What is tec-tec?
Tec-Tec is an app based on a psychological technique called evaluative conditioning. By continually pairing certain words and images, it changes associations with certain objects and concepts. Within a game-like design, Tec-Tec seeks to change associations with certain factors that may increase risk for self-injurious behaviors. Recent randomized controlled studies found that this method reduced self-injurious behaviors (click here for more information).
