Can Virtual Reality Help People Overcome Their Phobias?

Can Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy (VRET) be used to treat phobias? A 2019 study conducted by the Stockholm University on Arachnophobia (excessive fear of spiders) shows that VRET can be as effective as In-Vivo therapy in treating phobias. Two other studies using VRET for people suffering of glossophobia (public speaking anxiety) and acrophobia (fear of heights) have shown the same effectiveness.
