EmoTrak, A technology assisted emotion assessment and mindfulness training

Researchers: 
Eve Ekman and Erika Siegel, University of California, San Francisco

Brief description: 
EmoTrak, a smartphone delivered, evidence-based mindfulness intervention for stress reduction, was developed by researchers at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine who have collaborated directly with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, to help increase participant’s resilience to emotion amid their busy schedule.  The researchers behind Emotrak recognize that common mindfulness interventions require many weeks of intensive training and practice, a commitment that is simply not possible for an overwhelming majority of the population. There remains a critical need for the translation of mindfulness practices into easy-to-implement, technology-assisted interventions.  Drawing upon the wisdom of East in conjunction with Western science, Emotrak provides both training and assessment that can fit within the limited pedagogical time available for our busy lives.
