Summary
  • "The main goal of this book is to provide information on the applicability of virtual reality (VR) to the treatment of anxiety disorders. We explain what VR is, what type of technology it involves, and how it is applied in clinical practice. We also describe practical, hands-on strategies and interventions designed to guide therapists through each step of the treatment process for each of the specific anxiety disorders. The book begins with an overview of VR and its clinical applications for treating anxiety disorders. The remainder of the book is divided into three parts. Part I, which includes chapters 1 and 2, explains VR as a technology. Part II (chaps. 3-7) is intended as a user's guide to help clinicians understand how VR is implemented in the treatment of anxiety disorders. Part III (chaps. 8-17) is devoted to the treatment of specific anxiety disorders. After a brief introduction, the chapters are arranged from the more generalized disorders to the more specific phobias. Differences in the length of these chapters reflect the ease with which these disorders lend themselves to virtual reality graded exposure therapy and the amount of research and clinical work that has been completed in these areas. The final chapter discusses the state of current research and future directions. It provides comments about the outlook for therapeutic VR applications in the future. An appendix provides a resource list as well as a listing of the various measurement tools used in the assessment of both general anxiety and the specific phobias"--Introd. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
  • "The authors of this book, who are experienced virtual reality (VR) therapists, provide detailed guidelines on how to conduct VR treatment with patients who have various anxiety disorders. They provide not only an overview of the equipment used and the basic principles of treatment but also a discussion of VR therapy for specific disorders including panic disorder and agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, fear of flying or driving, claustrophobia, arachnophobia, and fear of medical procedures. Tips and caveats are provided, making this book important reading for therapists interested in exploring an exciting new therapy modality."--BOOK JACKET.
