Reintegration after a burnout is a challenging process

Reintegration after a burnout is a challenging process with a low success rate. Some people go back to work too early, before being fully recovered and suffer a relapse. Others are too afraid to go back to work, which leads to reluctance to return.
In any case, to improve the success rate of reintegration, a proper return-to-work strategy needs to be developed with the employee and the employer.

Virtual reality can improve and accelerate the path to reintegration

Through VR, people immerse themselves into a new reality where they can practice real life scenarios encountered at work.
This allows people suffering from a burnout to, together with the therapist, evaluate their readiness and overcome their fears and gradually get ready to return to work.
On the other hand it can be used to train people at the workplace to adjust their behavior towards the returning burnout colleague.

Bringing the power of VR to the care for burnout

The use of VR is a proven therapeutic tool

VR is an emerging tool to treat mental health disorders such as anxiety, PTSD, phobias, … 
Also therapists can better predict or enhance people’s emotions, cognitions and behaviours in the real world when they have work on them in virtual reality.
