Bounce Back

Virtual reality to improve stress resilience

Purpose of the study

A VR stress-resilience intervention, named Bounce Back, will be developed, consisting of a stress-inducing VR scenario, in which users learn to apply stress-management techniques and control their stress response. The primary aim is to investigate whether participants who train in the VR simulation show a higher degree of stress resilience than participants who are taught stress management using regular psychoeducation without simulation.
