Virtual Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

An immersive VR application that simulates the CBT training environment. The application was built for Goldsmiths’ Department of Social, Therapeutic and Community Studies in training CBT students.

Built using Unity3D and runs on Oculus Rift CV1, the user would act as the therapist and communicate face-to-face with a virtual patient with the aim to alleviate her fear of flying. The character was built using humanoid mechanim model, integrated with IBM Watson Unity SDK for speech recognition and OptiTrack Motion Capture for body movements.
