Avatar Therapy helps confront distressing voices
Fascinating video clip of a therapist treating a client with Schizophrenia using an avatar interface to simulate distressing inner voices and give the client training in controlling and overcoming the negative messages his voices communicate.
From the video description: „Antipsychotic drugs may do more harm than good. The tide is turning towards gentler methods, from talking therapies to brain training. Psychologists at King’s College London are leading a large scale trial to evaluate the effectiveness of avatar therapy for distressing voices experienced by patients with schizophrenia.“
