Abstract [en]

This session will present recent advances in virtual reality therapy for depression, anxiety, and related disorders. Many of these advances are a result of a boom in personal consumer electronics. We will discuss both stationary (e.g. Virtually Better, Oculus Rift) and mobile (e.g. Samsung Gear) systems along with new stimuli and capture techniques. Together, these advances improve the efficacy and availability of high tech solutions to previous obstacles in the delivery of cognitive behavioral therapy. The first presentation is a randomized controlled trial of therapist and internet administered one-session virtual reality exposure therapy for public speaking anxiety. The second presentation is an Individual Patient Data Meta-Analysis (IPDMA) of 35 virtual reality studies with 846 patients. Outcome data include overall findings and deterioration rates along with moderators. The third presentation will describe the relationship between posttraumatic and depressive symptoms during virtual reality exposure therapy with a cognitive enhancer. The fourth presentation describes a study that examined the feasibility and efficacy of VRE in treating MST-related PTSD. The fifth presentation will discuss a randomized controlled trial of animated versus live action virtual reality therapy for anxiety & pain in a Level I Trauma Center. Finally, the discussant, who has decades of experience in the field of VRET, will cover implications and future directions in the field of VR in the treatment of mental disorders.
