Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy Series: Addictions and Phobias

Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy is a type of exposure therapy that is safer, more practical, and more time and cost effective than reproducing the real world situations in a treatment context. Situations can be created that are difficult to find in real life, and in a format that is often more realistic than imagining the feared situation.  Course completion time is approximately 1.5 hours.  When you have completed this course, you will be able to describe the underlying rationale of exposure therapy in general and virtual reality exposure therapy specifically, as a treatment for phobias. You will have working knowledge of both technical and clinical nuances of virtual reality exposure therapy in the treatment of phobias, and will be able to describe the benefits to both therapist and patient.

CBT for addictions often involves cue exposure and skills rehearsal within a hierarchy of situations culminating with skills rehearsal in-vivo. Ultimately, the patient must  rehearse skills in the real world, without the support of the therapist. One way to bridge the gap is Virtual Reality (or VR), a computer/human interaction technology that immerses the patient in a virtual world. The goals of VR Cue Exposure Therapy include facilitating the generalization of behavior from the safe therapeutic setting to new, “real world” settings enhancing the therapist’s ability to assess the patient’s symptoms and behaviors and improving communication between patient and therapist. Course Completion time is approximately 1.5 hours.  When you have completed this course, you will be able to describe the underlying rationale of cue exposure and the ways virtual reality cue exposure is used, as a treatment for addictions to substances such a nicotine and alcohol. You will have working knowledge of both technical and clinical nuances of virtual reality cue exposure in the treatment of addictions, and will be able to describe the benefits to both therapist and patient.
