In two previous episodes Emotion Perception After TBI/Stroke w/ Drs. Zupan & Neumann announced to the world on our show that they’ll have a new free app out soon to help folks conquer Alexithymia. Here is some more info on that app:
The FACES app is an App version of  the facial affect recognition intervention that we tested and has the highest strongest level of evidence for treating facial affect recognition deficits after TBI. I think we talked about it on your program, but if you think it would help, you  could include some version of the below info.  That said, anyone will be able to download the app, it’s just not intended to be self-delivered.  Hope this helps!
The FACES App: 
What is it?:  It is a therapeutic program consists of exercises intended to help teach individuals who have problems with emotion perception to better recognize others’ emotions— to be able to identify and relate to happy, sad, angry, and fearful facial expressions in others. This is an evidence-based approach (Neumann et al, 2015) and has been deemed a practice standard (Cicerone et al 2019) for treating emotion perception deficits in individuals with neurological disorders.

Cicerone, K. D., Goldin, Y., Ganci, K., Rosenbaum, A., Wethe, J. V., Langenbahn, D. M., Malec, J. F., Bergquist, T. F., Kingsley, K., & Nagele, D. (2019). Evidence-based cognitive rehabilitation: systematic review of the literature from 2009 through 2014. Archives of physical medicine and rehabilitation, 100(8), 1515-1533.
Who is it for?: Clinicians treating individuals with neurological disorders who have emotion perception deficits
Intended Delivery Method: This intervention was created as a clinical tool for therapists and healthcare professionals to use as a resource when treating patients who have emotion perception problems.  It is not intended for patients to use on their own or to be delivered by a care-partner or family member, as that approach has not been tested or validated by research.
