RTÉ (Raidió Teilifís Éireann), Ireland’s national public-service media, featured Skip Rizzo and his work using virtual reality for treating post-traumatic stress. The story, based on Rizzo’s presentation at Ireland’s Web Summit, noted that Rizzo has been using virtual reality since the 90’s and has been experimenting with the Oculus Rift with more detailed simulations of deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan with positive results. This intersection of gaming, virtual reality, cinematic storytelling and clinical psychology could see exposure therapy applied in numerous other contexts, from road traffic accidents to sex attacks, stated the story.
