Zoophobia – VR Therapy

Virtual Reality Therapy for Zoophobia

In vivo exposure to work on the fear of animals can be difficult to carry out. It becomes difficult to control the environment that needs to be reproduced, particularly the animal’s reactions, specific situations, the need for certain species, etc. Also, can generate enormous anxiety levels which in consequence can make the patient refuse or even abandon the treatment. VR and Augmented Reality (AR), help to ease the patient’s anxiety about the intervention of fear of insects and other animals, having total control over the different variables during the exposure, allowing the therapist to control the environment, which gives you the freedom to customize the session to the patient’s needs.
