Example text

Significant reductions in anxiety, depression and number of panic attacks for both treatment groups were reported. However, the sample was small, and no followup data was obtained. Choi, et al. (2005) conducted a larger study composed of 40 patients with two treatment groups (20 in each). The first group received four sessions of VR combined with CBT and the second, a traditional 12-session panic control program. Both treatment groups improved significantly on subjective (questionnaire) ratings of anxiety and depression, on ability to reduce or discontinue medication, and on clinician's rating of end-state functioning.

1 Fear of Flying Six randomly controlled studies combining VR and CBT found VR to be an effective tool for flight phobia (Bornas, Tortella-Feliu, &Llabrés, 2006; Maltby, Kirsch, Mayers, & Allen, 2002; Muhlberger, Herrmann, Wiedemann, Ellgring, & Pauli, 2001; Muhlberger, Wiedemann, & Pauli, 2003; Rothbaum, Anderson, Zimand, Hodges, Lang, & Wilson, 2006; Rothbaum, Hodges, Anderson, Price, & Smith, 2002; Wiederhold, Gevirtz, &Spira, 2001). , 2002). , 2001). Furthermore, Muhlberger et al. (2003) found no differences between the treatment and wait list groups in actual flying rates.

For example, a vivid and compelling program entitled Snow World was developed by Hoffman and colleagues as a distraction from the intense pain that accompanies changing bandaging of severe burn victims (Hoffman, Blough, & Patterson, 2007). Much of the current research is based on case studies and small samples, but suggests the great potential in this field. , 2009; ONeal, Patterson, Soltani, Teeley, & Jensen, 2008). A somewhat larger study was designed with 20 juvenile patients, for whom an intravenous placement of an attachment for MRI was painful but necessary for their successful medical treatment.
