SIT – Social Interaction Therapy

In cooperation with Armanda Weibel, Lisa Heierli and Simon Häusler

"SIT" is a tool for psychologists treating patients with a social phobia. The set-up consists of a computer screen, a VR headset and a control app for the therapist. The virtual space, which the patient enters via headset, is a collection of adjustable situations in which the patient can encounter his insecurities and social fears. The therapist chooses personas from the vast library, and places them in the virtual room.

SIT supports conventional conversation therapy with an additional visual and auditory layer and creates a new possibilty of conversation between therapist and patient.
