Avatar therapy Clinical Trial
Avatar Therapy is a new approach to the treatment of auditory hallucinations (hearing voices). Computer avatars are first designed by patients to give a form to the voices they hear and then the avatars are controlled by therapists to encourage patients to oppose the voices so that the voices gradually come under the patient's control. A pilot study reported dramatic results on a small set of patients. The present study aims to validate the concept in a randomised controlled trial on a large group (70 in each arm) using newly trained therapists. Present work also aims to develop and certify the technology to a level at which it can be commercialised.
