The global number of people grieving a loved one is enormous. Seeing the Wonder is an app designed to help people process their grief and inspire them to embrace life. The app comprises two components. The first allows users to explore an interactive narrative. This narrative synthesizes traditional humanities media (e.g., literature, visual art, music) into a rich digital experience. The second extends ideas from the narrative into a reflective journaling activity. This activity is based on grief and bereavement theory and borrows from models and case studies in the areas of cognitive-behavioral therapy and creative art therapy.
