AVATAR 2 trial launched

International Edu News

AVATAR therapy uses digital avatars to represent the auditory hallucinations experienced by people with psychosis to help them cope with the distress caused by the voices. Developed by King’s College London, UCL and UCL Business, AVATAR2 sees this ground-breaking therapy trial extended to sites across the country including University of Manchester and University of Glasgow as well as King’s College London and University College London.  

The AVATAR2 trial has two clear aims

    To test two different forms of AVATAR therapy comparing each with a treatment as usual control and to find out which might be most helpful for people. People will be offered either six sessions (brief AVATAR therapy) or twelve sessions (extended AVATAR therapy), delivered weekly.
    To learn more about how AVATAR therapy may work, how it can be tailored to the individual and how best to deliver the therapy in clinical services.
