VR and Mental Training

It’s in press. An invited chapter on Virtual Reality and Mental Training as part of the book Advancements in Mental Skills Training edited by Maurizio Bertollo, Edson Filho and Peter Terry.

Although research on VR is growing, VR has not yet paved its way for being a standard tool in applied sport psychology. Results of VR studies on anxiety/pressure, attentional focus, observation and imagery, indicate that VR may be a valuable way to augment mental training. Future directions of VR for sport psychology and VR-based mental training may include extending VR research to goal-setting, self-talk and other mental techniques and skills, bringing research from the laboratory to the field, and developing recommendations and guidelines for practitioners.
