Through immersive VR and embodiment, aggressors can see, hear, and feel what it’s like to be on the receiving end of aggression.
Virtual Reality Rehabilitation
for Domestic Violence
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.
Aplications of VR to prevent Domestic Violence
Intervention in offenders who exercise gender-based violence in the prison area and in alternative criminal measures.
Actions and resources aimed at removing social structures and cultural stereotyps that perpetuate gender violence.
Actions of information and social awareness for the adolescent and youth audience as a strategy to promote coeducational models, emphasizing female knowledge and the construction of new masculinities.
VRespect.ME is aimed at stakeholders interested in the psychological and social rehabilitation of aggressors engaged in gender-based violence, entities dedicated to preventing criminal behavior, organizations involved in victim care and protection, as well as groups leading awareness and co-education programs.
VRespect.Me is developed as part of the EU project VR per Genere (Virtual Reality Prevention of Gender Violence in Europe based on Neuroscience of Embodiment, PeRspective, and Empathy). This initiative focuses on deploying cost-effective prevention and rehabilitation tools based on immersive virtual reality to reduce intimate partner violence.
