Directed by Rory Owen Delaney. Of the 2.3 million U.S. military personnel who have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001, studies estimate that as many as 460,000 suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder on returning home. The innovative virtual reality clinical therapy for PTSD developed by Dr. Skip Rizzo at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies leverages computer and gaming technologies in novel ways to increase accessibility and acceptability, as well as extend the overall effectiveness of treatment beyond current conventional exposure therapy with highly promising results.
