This major research paper investigates the understanding of the role of persuasive technology in the implementation of alternative digital platforms to support mental health treatments in children; specifically those related to selective mutism. It analyzes the effectiveness in the behavioural change by integrating trigger functions into a wearable device. At the same time, this paper illustrates how this technology can help caregivers manage treatments using collaborative healthware.
