Our first talk of this year will be by Dr Lucia Valmaggia, a Reader in Clinical Psychology and Digital Mental Health at King's College London. Lucia was initially scheduled to present for us last April, but has kindly agreed to reschedule. The talk will be at 4pm-5pm on Wednesday 30th September, and you can find the link to the Zoom meeting below, along with the password you will need for accessing the meeting.
Lucia has provided the following description for the talk:
Virtual Reality for Mental Health: Bringing Reality into the Lab
Virtual Reality (VR) enables researchers and clinicians to bring social situations into the lab or consultation room. The same virtual social environment can be presented to different individuals to assess, in real-time, how they feel and behave. VR environments can also be used to help people overcome their fears and learn new ways of dealing with situations that cause them distress. I will show examples of the use of VR in mental health research and treatment.
