Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorder, but they are treatable. As part of the computer science field, virtual reality offers an alternative to standard therapy for mental health disorders that immerses patients into interactive, three-dimensional worlds. These virtual worlds expose humans to objects and/or situations that may be unlikely or impossible in the real world. This book will provide a step-by-step process for applying user-centered design techniques to the development of a software application for the treatment of a mental health disorder, specifically post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
