Lunch & Learn: Virtual Reality in Therapy with Coastal Therapy and Wellness

Date & Time

Thursday, March 30

12:00pm - 1:00pm EST



VR technology and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can both improve the outcomes of standard interventions. A decade of controlled studies has demonstrated the efficacy and efficiency of VR-based therapy intervention on mental disorders, particularly anxiety and specific phobias. It has a higher level of clinical effectiveness than the traditional imagination exposure technique.

This workshop will be hosted in partnership with Josie Rhoads, LCSW at Coastal Therapy and Wellness.

Josie is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified EMDR Therapist, EMDRIA Consultant in Training and a Qualified Clinical Supervisor. She is the Clinical Director at Coastal Therapy & Wellness, overseeing the practice and the Student Intern program.

Josie has experience working with clients on a wide range of mental health and behavioral issues, however, has a special interest in conditions associated with traumatic experiences. Trauma does not always mean PTSD.
