A diversidade nos tipos de procedimentos esta presente tambem nos estudos que usaram VRET em casos de medo e fobia de dirigir, o que indica a necessidade de se conhecer e analisar esses procedimentos para que, em estudos futuros, seja possivel optar pelos que sao mais apropriados do ponto de vista analitico-comportamental, quando se tem esse enfoque como fundamentacao teorica.
Foram selecionados os artigos publicados em lingua portuguesa, inglesa e espanhola que realizaram estudos empiricos de aplicacao da VRET.
Quanto aos demais estudos, alem da avaliacao da VRET havia objetivos adicionais de avaliacao: (1) do uso do celular como ferramenta terapeutica (Wiederhold et al.
A maioria dos estudos focou em instrumentos como inventarios e questionarios, com medidas pre-intervencao, durante e pos-intervencao para avaliacao dos procedimentos e resultados do tratamento com VRET.
Therapists attended all VRET sessions, applying the VRET system, and guiding the use of cognitive strategies.
As it can be seen in Figure 2 VRET was the condition assessed as the most aversive one, second was the CAE-SA, and finally the CAE-T.
Figure 3 shows that both those participants that had experienced the VRET and the CAE-T conditions show preferences for the same treatment they had received.
The VRET condition was the one that obtained the highest preference percentages among the participants of this same condition and the CAE-SA, with the exception of the CAE-T condition, which was chosen as the second best option.
Thus, VRET is mentioned as an alternative treatment to be used before the in vivo exposure (Wald & Taylor, 2000).
According to Wald and Taylor (2003), VRET has other limitations: it may not be cost-effective given the current cost of virtual reality technology, it is not widely accessible to therapists and clients, and sometimes it is not able to sufficiently target the client's idiosyncratic driving fears (Wald & Taylor, 2003).
The purpose of this article is to review, by means of a systematic methodology, the literature that supports the potential effectiveness of VRET in the treatment of driving phobia.
Among the articles we selected those approaching virtual reality applied to driving phobia treatment and trials with VRET for anxiety disorders.
