    VR and AR are becoming increasingly prominent as treatments of anxiety disorders, including phobia. This lecture will discuss the history of VR use in exposure therapy and discuss the current understanding of what makes a VR experience effective for phobia treatment from a psychological, physiological and technical point of view. We'll look at the current projects in development and future directions.


    You'll be up-to-date about the climate of VR in phobia treatment, and have a greater understanding of how VR treatment works and why.

    Intended Audience

    The audience will represent any developers and members of the development team who wish to collaborate with healthcare institutions to create therapeutic VR applications.
