February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm£20.00
David Boyle offers an intriguing exploration into the evolving landscape of psychotherapy, enhanced by cutting-edge technologies. Building on his keynote at the SEA Conference, David ventures beyond the traditional confines of real human therapists and real therapy rooms to illuminate the groundbreaking role of AI therapists and Virtual Reality (VR) environments in therapeutic practices.
David will revisit the core insights from his SEA Conference keynote to explore the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and psychotherapy. He’ll delve into how these technologies can aid therapists in understanding and assisting their clients more effectively. David will also address AI’s ethical considerations and limitations in therapeutic settings, emphasizing the importance of human judgment and empathy in the process.
He’ll also introduce the transformative impact of VR in therapy. He’ll delve into how VR is not just a tech gimmick but a powerful tool in treating phobias, PTSD, and more.
The presentation aims to give therapists a deeper understanding of VR and AI’s capabilities and limitations, encouraging them to consider how AI can be integrated into their practice to enhance the therapeutic experience beyond the constraints of the real world. David’s talk invites psychotherapists to engage with new technologies not as a replacement for the human touch in therapy but as complementary tools that can enrich their practice and client outcomes.
