To date, numerous studies have investigated the beneficial role of virtual reality (VR) in psychological rehabilitation as both a
standalone tool, and through its integration with traditional modes of therapy. This review presents the main results of pertinent
randomized control trial (CRT) studies published in the past 15 years. Those seem to suggest that VR is a viable tool to be considered
by clinicians when treating different types of psychological disorders. It also highlights its short-term and long-term benefits in the
rehabilitation of such disorders. However, this review also highlights the need for guidelines that would clarify how VR can be safely
and efficiently implemented in clinical practice.
