This continuing education will present a scientific review of the state and applications of virtual reality (VR) in therapy. Participants will learn about the basics of VR and VR technology, the theory of Wirth et al’s model of spatial presence, and evidence-based uses of VR therapy with specific populations (e.g., ADHD, Anxiety, etc.), as well as observe a demonstration in a “sandbox” use of VR for psychoeducation and CBT skill development. After attending this CE, participants will understand what makes VR a unique therapeutic tool, how it is effectively used, and should be able to consider how VR can be applied within their own practice.
