Simple to use, easy tasks, free.
Lacks adaptivity and motivating features.
Calm Harm is a simple to use app, mostly recommended as an adjunct to treatment, due to the nature of the condition it’s aiming to address. Its simplicity makes it a practical tool to apply. Activities are simple and realistic, delivered in an attractive design. As part of an ongoing treatment, the app can overcome a lack of adaptiveness and motivating features that could benefit it as a standalone tool.
Notes for Clinicians
Calm Harm could be recommended for patients who self-harm, and possess a certain amount of energy and motivation that are required to “ride the wave” of the self-harm urge. The app can be used in between sessions as a tool to help overcome the urge to self-harm, while the therapist can assist in reviewing weekly logs and progress, and in motivating towards continuous use.
