Brygida Walczak's insight:

This is a 20 minute piece done by VICE Canada on our work with Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy for PTSD with a short segment on our DARPA funded work on the project "Detection and Computational Analysis of Psychological Signals (DCAPS)" in collaboration with Louis-Philippe Morency. The VR PTSD Exposure Therapy project is now releasing a new 14 scenario system and is working on scenarios to support treatment of Combat Medics/Corpsmen and for victims of Military Sexual Trauma. The DCAPS work involves the creation of intelligent Virtual Human Agents that can engage in an interview with a live person. The character, Ellie, can actually sense and interpret non-verbal signals (face and body gestures and vocal prosody) to better understand the psychological state of the person being interviewed. Retired Veteran, Jon Warren appears in the video and is a former patient in our treatment program at the Long Beach VA and who was the subject of a long article in the LA Times in 2013 (Healing Sgt. Warren) http://www.latimes.com/local/la-me-he... . Jody Mitic, a Canadian Veteran and double amputee wounded warrior conducts the interview and discussion in this very thoughtful piece. For more info on this work, contact Skip Rizzo at arizzo@usc.edu

Can a computer cure PTSD? Almost human: Lab treats trauma with virtual therapy | Virtual Reality Therapy | Scoop.it
Brygida Walczak's insight:

"The problem we have, particularly with the current crisis in mental health in the military, is that we don't have enough well trained providers to handle the problem," says Skip Rizzo, the associate director for medical virtual reality at the ICT.

"This is not a replacement for a live provider, but it might be a stop-gap that helps to direct a person towards the kind of care they might need."

Sandys VR's curator insight, November 5, 2013 9:42 AM

Very interesting article. I like the way the author describes how it felt like and then leads over to the facts. This is not really my field of expertise, but I enjoyed reading the article and hope you will too.
