The project is aimed at healing anxiety, fears, correcting destructive thinking and behavior etc. through an interactive story based on the plot of a fairy tale. The project is initiated by Elena Monke, Ukrainian psychological researcher with focus on anxiety by young children and fairytale author.

The method of fairy tale therapy is based on the process of building mental, even unconscious connections between characters, plot and actions in a fairy tale and what happens in reality. This is a kind of hint on how to do the right thing, which path to choose and evaluate yourself from the outside. A fairy tale is always a transfer of fairy tale meanings into reality.

Two studentteams have worked hard two semesters on transforming stories to gameplay for Mind my Light.
