Through immersive VR and embodiment, aggressors can see, hear, and feel what it’s like to be on the receiving end of aggression.
What if the aggressor could finally understand the victim’s perspective? Through this unique virtual experience, we strive to foster empathy and improve social behavior among aggressors, ultimately promoting positive change and reducing intimate partner violence.
