Abstract:
This study is among the first to examine how physiological processes change throughout PTSD treatment and the first to compare standard exposure therapy to therapy augmented with virtual reality (VR) in active-duty soldiers with PTSD. Results showed that soldiers in VR therapy had smaller physical reactions to trauma memories compared to those who did not receive treatment, whereas those who got standard treatment did not. These findings provide insight into possible mechanisms of PTSD treatment, point to potential objective indicators of early treatment response in active-duty soldiers, and suggest that VR treatment might lead to earlier symptom reduction.
