Self-compassion training in virtual reality

Hi there!

Do you own a VR-headset? We could really use your help! We developed a Virtual Reality intervention that could help people increase their self-compassion and cope with loneliness or depression. 

We are three students from Eindhoven University of Technology who are performing a study on new methods for increasing self-compassion. With this study we measure the effectiveness of different self-compassion training methods that can be performed at home. Normally, the VR-lab at our university can be used to invite participants over. Unfortunately, due to the Corona virus these are closed. Therefore, we are looking for virtual reality enthusiasts owning either an Oculus or a mobile-based VR-headset combined with a recent Android phone to participate in our study. If you do not own one, you can still help us by participating, as we are also testing non-VR training methods! 

Participation will take approximately 30 minutes of your time and can be done online on your computer. All participants have a chance to win an Oculus Go virtual reality headset!

Interested in participating? We need participants who …

  • are at least 18 years old.
  • have normal or corrected-to-normal vision (e.g. glasses, contact lenses).
  • have a computer with an internet connection.
