Virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET) is a form of exposure therapy that uses technology. Exposure therapy seeks to help decrease the intensity of the stress responses you might have to situations, thoughts, or memories which provoke anxiety or fear.
One of the best ways to manage your anxiety is to face it. Virtual reality exposure treatment (VRET) is a technology-based form of exposure therapy. Exposure therapy aims to help you reduce the severity of your stress reactions to circumstances, ideas, or memories that cause worry or fear. Using a VR headset, you are exposed to your triggers in a controlled and safe environment.
Studies such as the “Experiential Cognitive Therapy in the Treatment of Panic Disorders with Agoraphobia” or the “Virtual reality exposure therapy for anxiety and related disorders”, have shown the effectiveness of VRET to treat anxiety and specific phobias such as agoraphobia, amaxophobia, fear of heights, public speaking, fear of flying, etc. Studies reveal that VRET is also effective posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic disorder (PD) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
