Use of natural exposures in VR for relaxation and resource strengthening
Relaxation techniques are now recognised as having a wide and varied range of applications in the treatment of mentally ill people. If the conscious modification of the body’s own signals is successful, this leads to an independently controlled reduction of various physical and, as a result, psychological stressors. However, if this is difficult, VR offers a further possibility to experience relaxation and resource strengthening. In this module you will learn how to use VR for relaxation techniques.
Scientific studies and brain research for your competence enhancement
In this module you will learn about the latest studies on virtual reality in psychotherapy. You will learn what influences VR has on the effectiveness of anxiety treatments and other psychological issues. In addition, you will deal with the neural processes involved in confrontation with fear-inducing stimuli or during natural exposure. Afterwards you will have expanded your competence with scientifically based information.
