1. Schaaf, Andrea J. Tilt Brush: The Utilization of a Virtual Reality Intervention for Evaluating Self-Reported Anxiety, Depression, & Stress.

Degree: MA, Arts and Sciences: Communication, 2019, University of Cincinnati

The current need for increased awareness and resources for mental health care in the United States is overwhelming, especially as it impacts the lives of young adults. While there are a great deal of therapies that may be utilized from one provider to another and dependent on the needs of each individual patient, one method is that of Art Therapy. Evolving from its traditional methods, current methods of Digital Art Therapy have welcomed the integration and use of information communication technologies (ICTs) into their practice, such as Virtual Reality (VR). The purpose of this study is to learn more about the potential of VR as it is integrated into Art Therapy and the differences that the various traditional and technological forms may have, as they pertain to mental health interventions. This quantitative study utilized an experimental design to test the effectiveness of one specific arts-based VR application, Tilt Brush, for relieving symptoms of anxiety, depression, and/or stress among a student sample at the University of Cincinnati. This study also evaluated effects of affect and coping mechanisms to fully determine if there were differences on participants from the intervention. This study found that there was no significant effect for the decrease of anxiety, depression, or stress across all participants (N=116). However, the study did see a general decrease in affect levels. This study confirms previous studies regarding the prevalence of clinical mental health diagnoses among this population and provides theoretical and practical implications moving forward.
