Using Virtual Reality and Physiological Monitoring to Optimize Psychological Clinical Research Trials

LTC Melba Stetz, Psy.D.

Psychologists must not only employ the right psychological techniques but also the right technology to help address psychological issues with their patients. To assist practitioners in employing sound assessments and interventions, research psychologists conduct thorough investigations that are used to guide effective therapeutic interventions and techniques. 

Over the past decade, numerous psychological clinical trials have been done that have evidenced the benefits of integrating technological tools into treatment. Examples of some of the empirically-based research done and practice opportunities for integrating the information provided into current patient care will be the highlighted. Specifically, a review of the virtual reality and physiological feedback systems (hardware and software), will be discussed.
