"I can't help but think that Shrinky is the future of the psych field." - Chris Hall, 143Apps
New York (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
Berger Enterprises today announced the availability on the App Store of its second “Shrinky"™ application for the iPhone® and iPod touch®. Dubbed “Shrinky’s Anger Remedy,” this anger management tool continues a series of mobile apps that provide a simple method for immediate emotional relief and managing relationships.
“We designed "Shrinky's Anger Remedy" to provide fast emotional relief when you need it most and save consumers time and money. With the anger epidemic we are seeing in the world today, we wanted to give people unlimited access to anger management at a price they could afford, rather than $30,000 for a month at an in-patient facility,” said Glenn Berger, PhD, LCSW, and president of Berger Enterprises. “For $2.99 you get a portable anger coach you can take to the office, your kitchen, on the road, or at your kid’s soccer game -- anywhere you might need immediate help in calming down."
“And it’s easy: in a few simple steps you can control your anger without anyone else knowing,” he continued. “Best of all, results actually improve over time, and the techniques used can replace costly prescriptions and their side effects for many people.”
The name “Shrinky” derives from the application’s narrator and mascot, a comforting, disarming, and credible Muppet-like figure that visually guides users through a series of scientific therapy-based techniques that go beyond the mere meditation methods used by currently available products.
Along with today’s release for anger, Berger Enterprises also announces the release of “Shrinky’s Cheap Chill,” the basic version of the Shrinky app for $ .99.
In addition, in order to mark the release of these two new versions, “Shrinky’s Anxiety Remedy” will be available for a short time at the reduced price of $1.99.
While the Shrinky application announced today addresses feelings of anger, future versions will fill out an emotional toolbox for helping manage other difficult life issues like addiction and depression. All apps in the series are designed to turn a mobile device into a wise, warm and helpful counselor.
“Shrinky provides emotional coaching when and where you need it most,” said Berger. “It’s therapy to go. Face-to-face interaction with a human counselor is still an ideal approach, but Shrinky can help bridge the gap for those suffering from rage who are looking for a fast-working and economical alternative to conventional anger management classes,” he added.
Shrinky is available on App Store.
