           special issue.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This editorial introduces the current Special Issue of Translational Issues in Psychological Science which provides novel research findings and perspectives on the use of Virtual Reality (VR) for psychological applications. The variety of topics presented in this themed issue underscore the broad applicability (and potential value) of VR technology for addressing the diverse challenges that psychologists face in clinical research and practice. Taken together, the articles illustrate the importance of conducting translational research on the design, development, and evaluation of VR psychological applications. This is an area that is likely to have a significant impact on the future of clinical practice and research. Moreover, the expertise and skills of psychologists are seen as an essential component within an interdisciplinary approach that optimizes VR creation, relevance, and value across all areas of VR application.

  • Remotely conducted versus office-based virtual reality treatment for
           aviophobia: Questions of feasibility and accessibility.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET) is an efficacious treatment modality for anxiety disorder treatment. Advances within this technology have allowed individuals to experience virtual reality remotely over the Internet; yet little is known about the feasibility of implementing remote VRET. This study compared the effectiveness of conducting VRET remotely to delivering the same treatment in a traditional, in-person format. A sample of 17 aviophobia participants, split over the 2 conditions, received 8 intensive hours of VRET treatment for fear of flying that included virtual exposure to full airplane flights. The VRET was delivered via smartphone technology through a commercial supplier. All participants were administered the Flight Anxiety Situations (FAS) at intake and at the conclusion of treatment. Whereas participants in both conditions demonstrated significant reductions in flight-related anxiety as measured by the FAS, there were no significant differences between treatment conditions on the FAS and completion rates of graduation flights. These findings provide preliminary evidence for the feasibility of remotely conducted VRET as the outcomes for remote and in-person conditions were equally effective. By implementing remote VRET, clinicians may effectively work with phobic individuals whom experience barriers to psychotherapeutic treatment such as prohibitive costs or lack of community accessibility to such services. VRET may become another useful teletherapy modality with additional research supporting its utility. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Virtual reality exposure in cognitive behavioral group therapy for social
           anxiety disorder: A qualitative evaluation based on patients’ and
           therapists’ experiences.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Social anxiety disorder (SAD) is a highly prevalent and impairing disorder. Current best practice is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), but there are several challenges associated with performing exposure therapy. Virtual reality exposure (VRE) may improve treatment efficacy of SAD in a group therapy context, because it allows for greater control, flexibility, and individualization of the exposure stimuli. However, to date no study has investigated the use of VRE for SAD in a group context. In the present study, nine patients who had undergone group CBT with VRE for SAD and three therapists responsible for the treatment were interviewed about their experiences. The objective of the study was to investigate the practical and therapeutic challenges of using VRE in a group therapy context. Thematic analysis was used to analyze the data. The results showed that it was difficult for the patients to engage with the VRE in a group therapy context and that there were several practical challenges. However, all participants found the VRE exercises to be meaningful, because it gave them a medium to practice and understand typically avoided social situations. The latter has not previously been described as a treatment mechanism for anxiety through virtual reality. However, the appropriateness of VRE in group therapy remains unclear. Implications are discussed. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Virtual reality in social skills training for people with schizophrenia.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Schizophrenia is characterized by disruptions in thought processes, perceptions, emotional responsiveness, and social interactions. The social skill deficits often predate the onset of schizophrenia, are present at the first episode, are stable over time in the absence of psychosocial treatment, and are predictors of relapse and rehospitalization. Social skills training is an efficacious intervention specially to reduce negative symptoms and to improve social functioning for people living with schizophrenia. The use of virtual reality (VR) has been proposed as a possible strategy to overcome these conventional social skills training programs’ limitations. The purpose of this scoping review was to design a social skills training program for people with schizophrenia using VR. The inclusion criteria were English language, published between 2010 and 2020, adult participants diagnosed with schizophrenia, and using VR for training social skills. Studies in which the participants had another mental illness or psychopathological instability and studies with interventions without using VR and in which social skills are not measured were excluded. VR seems to be effective for training social skills in people with schizophrenia. VR can add many advantages to the treatment of schizophrenia, appearing to be effective for training social skills. In future studies it would be important to confirm that VR can effectively complement traditional treatments. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • A clinician’s introduction to 360° video for exposure therapy.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Exposure therapy using 360° videos is a promising new intervention modality theoretically based in existing empirically supported interventions. Virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET) has been developed over two decades and has broad empirical support. However, systems and software for VRET can be quite expensive. A related and more affordable medium, 360° video, has received interest as an alternative to traditional VR. These videos are captured using a specialized camera and can serve as immersive photorealistic virtual environments for use in exposure therapy. The inexpensive and do-it-yourself nature of 360° videos can be leveraged to increase accessibility to exposure therapy for patients and as a steppingstone to VRET competencies for clinicians. The current article provides a basic foundation to begin creating and using 360° videos as exposure stimuli. This foundation consists of important concepts and relevant research, introduction to equipment, steps for creating and sharing original 360° videos, recommendations for using existing 360° videos, and guidance for implementation. Future research and clinical opportunities for 360° video exposure therapy are also explored. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Investigating virtual reality for the delivery of self-modeling
           interventions: Virtual reality self-modeling as an intervention for
           stuttering.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Virtual Reality Self-Modeling (VRSM) is a new self-modeling intervention. It is the coming together of two well-established interventions, video self-modeling (VSM) and virtual reality (VR) and can be described as using 360-degree VR videos, viewed through a VR system headset or smartphone, to depict individuals self-modeling a desired behavior. By using 360-degree video, individuals who watch VRSM interventions will be able to view themselves eliciting a desired behavior while feeling as if they are immersed within the environment being watched. The distinction between traditional VR treatments and traditional VSM treatments is that VRSM delivers both self-modeling and immersive exposure in order to promote treatment gains. Three adult participants with clinically significant chronic stuttering were administered VRSM interventions depicting themselves exhibiting fluent speech in historically problematic speaking situations. The research utilized a randomized multiple baseline design to investigate whether VRSM is an effective intervention for remediating stuttering. After receiving VRSM as an intervention for stuttering, participants demonstrated clinically meaningful reductions in their stuttering severity.

  • Preventing childhood injuries: Improving home hazard identification and
           resolution through serious game simulation.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Serious game simulations can improve engagement with intervention material, provide individualized scaffolding of new skills, circumvent literacy issues, and allow for skill practice in a simulated low-risk environment. Although serious games can offer flexibility, prevent frustration, and potentially reduce disengagement and attrition, most injury prevention programs for parents using technology do not include serious game simulation principles. This research examines Home Safety Hero, an innovative serious game simulation designed to promote understanding of home safety risks and how to resolve those risks. Injury risk for young children is an important problem and there is research evidence that children of parenting teens are at elevated risk. This preliminary research evaluates Home Safety Hero with parenting teens (n = 10; 100% female). Participants answered questionnaires on their demographics, technology ability and use, played all 3 phases of the simulation (i.e., Identification, Resolution, Distraction) 4 times, and answered questions about their engagement with the simulation and its content. Our findings indicate that parenting teens improved in the speed of identification, with and without distraction, and resolution of risks. The engagement data indicates that teens found the game engaging. Overall, teens became faster at spotting risks in the home and were quicker at acting when encountering risks. Home Safety Hero shows promise to improve home safety. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Is the testing effect ready to be put to work' Evidence from the
           laboratory to the classroom.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The testing effect refers to the benefits to retention that result from structuring learning activities in the form of a test. As educators consider implementing test-enhanced learning paradigms in real classroom environments, we think it is critical to consider how an array of factors affecting test-enhanced learning in laboratory studies bear on test-enhanced learning in real-world classroom environments. This review discusses the degree to which test feedback, test format (of formative tests), number of tests, level of the test questions, timing of tests (relative to initial learning), and retention duration have import for testing effects in ecologically valid contexts (e.g., classroom studies). Attention is also devoted to characteristics of much laboratory testing-effect research that may limit translation to classroom environments, such as the complexity of the material being learned, the value of the testing effect relative to other generative learning activities in classrooms, an educational orientation that favors criterial tests focused on transfer of learning, and online instructional modalities. We consider how student-centric variables present in the classroom (e.g., cognitive abilities, motivation) may have bearing on the effects of testing-effect techniques implemented in the classroom. We conclude that the testing effect is a robust phenomenon that benefits a wide variety of learners in a broad array of learning domains. Still, studies are needed to compare the benefit of testing to other learning strategies, to further characterize how individual differences relate to testing benefits, and to examine whether testing benefits learners at advanced levels.

  • Harnessing virtual reality for disaster mental health: A systematic
           review.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Widespread disasters, such as hurricanes, terrorist attacks, and viral outbreaks, represent a unique class of stressors that increase the demand for mental health care but also limit access to services. During the course of COVID-19, an unprecedented global pandemic, the detrimental effects of fear, uncertainty, and social isolation have particularly strained existing structures for psychological care. Virtual reality (VR) represents a promising means to address this still-growing need. Although VR has been applied in medical settings for decades, no existing literature has synthesized the strength of empirical support for VR’s acceptability, feasibility, and efficacy in the context of disaster mental health. In an attempt to fill this urgent need, the present systematic review summarizes the findings of 21 diverse studies of VR as a tool for disaster-related psychological resilience training, psychological first aid, or counseling. With an eye toward VR’s potential utility to address the incredible need for services created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we offer recommendations for key future directions and methodological considerations in the context of disaster mental health.

  • The UW Virtual Brain Project: An immersive approach to teaching functional
           neuroanatomy.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Learning functional neuroanatomy requires forming mental representations of 3D structure, but forming such representations from 2D textbook diagrams can be challenging. We address this challenge in the UW Virtual Brain Project by developing 3D narrated diagrams, which are interactive, guided tours through 3D models of perceptual systems. Lessons can be experienced in virtual reality (VR) or on a personal computer monitor (PC). We predicted participants would learn from lessons presented on both VR and PC devices (comparing pretest/posttest scores) but that VR would be more effective for achieving both content-based learning outcomes (i.e., test performance) and experience-based learning outcomes (i.e., reported enjoyment and ease of use). All participants received lessons about the visual system and auditory system, one in VR and one on a PC (order counterbalanced). We assessed content learning using a drawing/labeling task on paper (2D drawing) in Experiment 1 and a Looking Glass autostereoscopic display (3D drawing) in Experiment 2. In both experiments, we found that the UW Virtual Brain Project lessons were effective for teaching functional neuroanatomy, with no difference between devices. However, participants reported VR was more enjoyable and easier to use. We also evaluated the VR lessons in our classroom implementation during an undergraduate course on perception. Students reported that the VR lessons helped them make progress on course learning outcomes, especially for learning system pathways. They suggested lessons could be improved by adding more examples and providing more time to explore in VR. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)
