This week we got the chance to see a bot therapist in action:

LittleShift: How would you describe how you’re feeling?

VentureBeat: Happy

LittleShift: In one sentence, how would you describe the situation you’re in?

VentureBeat: I’m getting ready to go home

LittleShift:  Got it. What thoughts were going through your head at the time?

VentureBeat: What’s for dinner

LittleShift: Were these positive thoughts?

VentureBeat: Yes

LittleShift: Thought captured! That’s all for now. Anytime you have something you want to talk about, wake me up we’ll get started "</p

Making its debut this week on 5 bots to try, LittleShift uses cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you reframe negative emotions in a positive way. In this case, we felt good about feeling good about going home to eat dinner. Here are the five most popular bots this past week, as they appear on Botlist. Give them a try and let us know what you think.
