What is WebMAP?
WebMAP Mobile is a program for teens who have problems with chronic pain like headaches, abdominal pain, or back pain. WebMAP Mobile is designed to help teens cope with pain and increase their ability to do things that are important to them.
In this program, you will learn different behavioral and cognitive skills for managing pain and for doing more activities that you want to do. You are going to be traveling through awesome destinations during the program. It takes about 6 weeks or so to go through all of the destinations; however, you can use this app and the skills recommended for as long as you need to. Each of the places that you visit will teach different skills to help you manage your pain. You will also keep track of your symptoms and progress, and complete assignments to help you practice new skills. You will work on each assignment for a few days before you move onto the next place.
Who created it?
WebMAP Mobile was created by Dr. Tonya Palermo and her team at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute. The team is composed of health professionals and researchers with experience in e-health treatments for pain in youth. The software was developed by 2Morrow, Inc. a company specialized in mobile behavior change interventions.
The contents of the program have been adapted from a successful online pain treatment program called WebMAP, which stands for Web-based Management of Adolescent Pain, which teens could access on a computer through the internet.
You will get the most benefits if you follow the instructions and use the app daily. However, the effectiveness may vary from person to person. If you find that your pain is getting worse or you have any unexpected problem, please consult with your doctor before you continue using the app.
We removed the requirements to access skills so that all of the skills in the skills library are always available.
Ratings and Reviews
Amazing and Really Helpful App, but deleted my data...
As a sufferer of chronic pain, this app was incredibly helpful for me. It gave me lesson plans to help me learn about my pain and how to manage it. I really liked how it was separated into separate topics and gave me a place to record my process. This app really helped me learn how to manage my pain.
However, 4 weeks into the 6-week program, my app deleted all of my data! I went to open it up to record a meditation I had done, and it asked me to enter my name and start over. As I had not been able to find an option for signing in when creating an account, all of my data was lost. If this had not happened, I would most definitely have rated this app 5 stars.
Deleted my data
This app is overall okay, but it deleted my data after a couple weeks which was very frustrating.
