With bullying effecting thousands of children each year and cyberbullying on the rise, Brightside Behavioral Health is offering Virtual Reality Therapy focused on treating disorders generated by school harassment and cyberbullying. Virtual Reality is useful tool to conduct evaluation and intervention sessions in relation to bullying cases.
Brightside clinicians use a technology that allows children to confront the anxieties associated with bullying, particularly against repeated harassing behavior, physical or verbal aggression. Though bullying is most frequent at school, we aspire to accommodate a range of circumstances. Accordingly, other VR environments can be adapted to address bullying at school, in a car, on the bus and more. Other immersive features of VR provide an ideal environment to teach empathy to students in a culturally diverse world.
This environment simulates classroom harassment that is verbal, physical and indirect.
