You are invited to join us at our monthly breakfast program:
Virtual Reality- It’s real and you do not need to know anything about Microsoft’s X-Box, Sony’s PlayStation, or Nintendo’s Switch game consoles to use it with your patients
Randy A. Bressler, Psy.D. L.L.C.
Randy Bressler is a clinical psychologist with a subspecialty in pediatric neuropsychology, who has extensive experience treating and evaluating children, adolescents, and adults who have depression, anxiety, ADHD, autistic spectrum disorders & traumatic brain injuries.
The use of digital technologies has had considerable impact with how we deliver psychological care. There is ever growing research that shows how technological advances complement traditional psychotherapeutic treatment interventions and can lead to an improvement in treatment outcomes regarding psychological well-being. This presentation will focus on the benefits of employing virtual reality as one technology-based tool to enhance patient functioning.
1. Describe how VR was first introduced as a psychological intervention.
2. Identify at least two psychiatric conditions that VR has been found to be effective with treating.
3. Explain differences between virtual reality and augmented reality
4. Discuss the shortcomings with using digital technology/VR as a treatment tool.
This program is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and graduate students. It will be presented at an intermediate level, meant for those with some prior knowledge of the subject matter. The presenter does not have any commercial support and/ or conflict of interest for this program.
