Gaming is the future...check out this September 2008 article "Advanced Immersive Media Technologies" from the Shift in Action journal about Virtual-Reality Healing:

Remember virtual reality? It’s back, and it’s turning out to be a powerful healing modality for the treatment of a wide range of disorders—including anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, phobias, PTSD, and ADHD—as well as an effective tool for pain management and conflict negotiation.

The Interactive Media Institute recently hosted its annual “cybertherapy” conference, “CyberTherapy 13: Changing the Face of Healthcare.” It also publishes the Annual Review of CyberTherapy and Telemedicine,, an indexed journal available at its website (www.interactivemediainstitute.com). Other virtual-reality resources include the Virtual Reality Medical Center (www.vrphobia.com) and the virtual com-
munity of Second Life which has a variety of support-group options.
