Evaluating virtual reality therapy for treating acute post traumatic stress disorder

other experts on PTSD to study the effectiveness of virtual reality for treating acute PTSD in non-combat personnel such as medics and truck drivers. These service members are exposed to their own unique stresses and require different types of virtual reality scenarios.

Researcher Hunter Hoffman at the University of Washington (Seattle) and Sarah Miyahira of the Pacific Telehealth & Technology Hui (Oahu, HI) will work with Raymond Folen at the Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii to examine the effectiveness of using a virtual reality based cognitive behavioral treatment for U.S. warfighters suffering from acute PTSD.
