2 Non-generalized Social Phobia A thorough literature search for studies to include in this chapter, revealed no studies employing VR for non-generalized social phobia, other than for the treatment of public speaking anxiety. Current Trends and Future Directions for Virtual Reality Enhanced Psychotherapy 35 VRCBT has been used in therapy for public speaking anxiety in a few studies. North, North, and Coble (1998) compared VRCBT with a no-treatment group and found significant reduction in fear measures in the treatment group.

After studying various psychotherapeutic techniques in an academic setting, one way of becoming experienced is to role play. In addition, novice clinicians may view experienced clinicians at work. They may view training films. In some instances, they work as co-therapists before they begin to work directly with patients. If they are fortunate, their supervisor can view them in real time or film or tape them in their therapy sessions. They then meet with their supervisors to receive supervision.

13] These include increased blood pressure, mydriasis (dilated pupils), tachycardia (elevated heart rate), and increased sweat production. [18] Harvard studies have demonstrated that human volunteers can use biofeedback to achieve significant short-term changes in blood pressure and heart rate. Some people can even be trained to increase their heart rate while decreasing their blood pressure. Current research using biofeedback to treat hypertension has proved somewhat encouraging, but results have not been certain enough to establish biofeedback as a standard treatment for the disease.
