Abstract

Videogames are a special form of new technologies. Initially they have been conceived for entertainment; however, during the last years, a new wave of games targeted to more serious purposes, have been developed and successfully implemented, as a psychotherapeutical complement in the treatment of various medical illnesses and mental disorders.
