Virtual Reality Technology Treatment for Mental Illness

Presented by Stanford Health Library

Virtual Reality (VR) has been used for two decades to treat a variety of mental illnesses effectively. Recent technological developments in VR are offering even more potential. Embodied and immersive VR is being explored to treat body image disorders and psychosomatic illnesses. It also has potential to rewire implicit and unconscious beliefs and cognition that are especially important in mood and psychotic disorders. We will review the theory, evidence, application, and potential for psychiatry.

Speaker: Kim Bullock, MD
Clinical Associate Professor; Diplomate, Neuropsychiatry & Behavioral Neurology , UCNS; Diplomate of the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine; Director, Virtual Reality-Immersive Technology (VR-IT) Clinic & Laboratory; Stanford School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences
