TATRC VR Therapy for PTSD Treatment in Iraq
This contract brought the VRMC virtual reality (VR) posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment tool to Iraq. The PTSD treatment tool was developed by VRMC under the Office of Naval Research (ONR) Contract No. N00014-05-C-0136.
The tool is being used by psychiatrists and psychologists deployed to Iraq, where mental health professionals are now far forward. In-country clinicians appreciate use of the VR PTSD tool as part of an early intervention protocol, and provide VRMC clinicians with valuable feedback on ways to improve the tool.
