Facing Fears Through VR

Hundreds of therapist use VR to treat phobias. Studies have shown that VR has a more effective way of treating this than any other method. South African Psychologist James Taylor developed "Graduated exposure therapy". This Method Gradually exposes patients to what they are afraid of while getting therapy.

A psychologist and a computer scientist published the first paper examining VR as therapy, finding that it successfully helped patients overcome a fear of heights. The next year, a pair of scientists published a paper on the successes of using it to cure arachnophobia, or fear of spiders. Among their patients was a woman they dubbed “Ms. Muffet,” whose fear compelled her to duct-tape the doors and windows of her bedroom each night.

Exposure therapy, a form of cognitive behavioral therapy, involves subjecting patients to increasing amounts of things they fear, or otherwise hope to avoid. It is one of the great success stories of mental health, and it’s not just for phobias. Research on cases of intense fear and even traumatic brain injury shows that for a number of problems, the only way out is through.

Branding Yourself

In this article the author is discussing how to brand yourself. This allows you to differentiate yourself from others you may be competing for a job against. She says to define your overall aspirations. Defying your goals and then conducting research about it. To get to where you want to go you need to learn more about what others have done to get there. She also mentions that you should determine your brand attributes. Assessing your current state, thinking of how people see and doing what you can to change the way that they see you. By creating a game plan you develop a plan in which will allow you to accomplish the goals that you have set for yourself.

Being Confident, hard working, aspiring.

I think it is really cool that the players can get a feel for the way the pitcher pitches before meeting them. This takes sports to a new level.

I also thought this was interesting. Rather then seeing half of whats going on when a story is being told you are able to see the full scenery which allows you to fully experience whats going on.

 I love scary movies, so i would love to be able to watch one with VR. Just like the other article said you would be able to experience everything in the room rather than just what they want to show.
