Avatar Assisted Therapy

2.0 CEU/Contact Hours Available

Presented By:

This makes it possible for participants to be fully involved despite distance, transportation limitations, physical handicaps, or fear of stigma.

This technology has been adapted for more serious pursuits, and pilot projects using virtual worlds for addiction counseling have been in operation for over three years. This webina
