What is Virtual Reality?
VR can be defined as sets of three-dimensional environments with which a person interacts in real time. Generating senses of presence and immersion, VR technology elicits emotional responses similar to those provoked by real-life situations. The senses of immersion and presence are, in fact, characteristic components of this kind of technology. The Amelia VR solution offers professionals the opportunity to work with difficult-to-reproduce real-life situations, so they can control VR environments to suit the patient’s individual needs. This technology lets mental health professionals hold personalized virtual reality sessions within the safety of a consultation room.
How has VR been applied in psychology?
The potential of virtual reality as a tool in psychotherapy interventions and evaluations in clinical practice was discovered more than 30 years ago. Research in psychology already provides a broad empirical base that includes virtual reality or augmented reality protocols, with proven therapeutic efficiency (Botella et al., 2012). Virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET) enables gradual, individualized, controlled and immersive exposure, so therapists can easily implement care that may be more acceptable to patients than in vivo exposure. At Amelia Virtual Care, we develop virtual environments, so healthcare professionals can take advantage of accessible, flexible, customizable and appealing tools. All our environments are based on bibliographical reviews of validated studies, as well as on clinical experiences gained by mental health professionals.
Is Amelia Virtual Care a tool only for psychologists?
No. Amelia Virtual Care has been designed for mental care professionals (psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, hypnotherapists, etc.) and other healthcare specialists. The content available within the platform is customizable for each type of practice.
What are the benefits for my patients?
There is much scientific bibliography on VR benefits in mental health and compares VR efficacy to in vivo traditional techniques. A leading benefit that VR will bring to your practice is the possibility to apply a wide range of techniques without the use of traditional methods like imagination or in vivo exposure. Imagination skills can vary from one person to another, and it usually requires great effort for only mild results. Also, in vivo exposure has shown a high level of rejection, as it is often considered overly intense (García-Palacios et al., 2007). VR offers highly customized sessions, increases confidentiality and reduces logistic costs (Maldonado J.G., 2002). This helps your patient to focus and relax to get the most of therapy.
