VRespect.me
VRespect.Me is a powerful virtual reality experience designed to rehabilitate men with a history of domestic violence. It is the only scientifically proven product of its kind in the market.

Feel

Using Immersive Virtual Reality and through embodiment the aggressor is able to see, hear and feel like a victim on the receiving end of aggression. The virtual experience has been designed specifically to help aggressors develop empathy and improve social behavior.

Learn

We foster change through a new paradigm that includes and goes beyond the act of perspective-taking i.e. understanding a concept from an alternative point of view, such as that of another individual.

Change

Changing the perspective of an aggressive person through VR can drastically modify how they recognize emotions, such as fear. This helps to develop empathy and to learn new behavioural, non agressive strategies.
