This project is a proof-of-process for using Virtual Reality in a therapeutic setting to help the user forget a negative memory. For this project, we focused on prisoners who may want to forget or recontextualize a negative memory by experiencing it again in a controlled environment. By combining easy-to-use and activate VR technology with an experience journal, the ex-offender can scan a QR code added to their journal, and be teleported back to a traumatic location that corresponds to their journal entry. Under guided supervision, this can be a safe and cathartic experience. Without a guide, this process still delivers the freedom of choice back to someone who had lost it.
