Abstract

Chronic and acute stress are persistent and troubling health concerns for many people and military veterans in particular. Clinicians are increasingly turning to mindfulness techniques to provide people with the skills they need to self-manage that stress. However, training and getting people to adhere to the practice is difficult. In this paper, we talk about a virtual reality based system designed specifically to help veterans learn mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques.
