Computer-assisted treatments help patients conquer their phobias

Computer-assisted treatments help patients conquer their phobias | Personal Protection Products, Stun Guns, Pepper Spray | Scoop.it

Dr. Jesse Wright, a psychiatrist with University of Louisville Physicians, has authored papers on the efficacy of computer-assisted therapy and offers the virtual reality therapy in his U of L office.

 

According to Wright, patients with a debilitating fear of flying need to confront that fear directly — not by relying on “avoidance behaviors” like pre-flight medication or alcohol.

 

“To really overcome it, you have to look the fear in the eye and say OK, this is nothing, really, that I need to be afraid of,” Wright said.

 

But therapists can’t go along with patients to help them get through it. That’s where the virtual reality therapy comes in.

Yes please! It's really annoying having to commit a route to memory or stop and pull your phone out to check where you're going! This is a dream and couldnt be here soon enough! I love riding, but hate getting lost. Nice one Google!
