Abstract

Promoting resilience is crucial to support people in the face of potentially life-threatening traumatic experiences caused by existential crises arising from e.g., climate change and socioeconomic instabilities. Virtual Reality (VR) can aid in supporting resilience as it allows for embodied experiences and experiential learning.
Thus, we present the design and initial user evaluation of an immersive VR experience for strengthening resilience, inspired by Viktor Frankl’s meaning-centred psychotherapy approach `logotherapy and existential analysis' (LTEA).
The prototype immerses users in two experiences related to guilt or suffering. It then guides them through an interactive reflection, encouraging them to consider their potential for finding meaning even in adverse circumstances.
This paper contributes to the growing field of VR for well-being by introducing the under-explored approach of LTEA as a way to strengthen resilience. We discuss aspects of resilience support in VR by addressing the relevance of identifying and utilising technology-specific affordances to enhance reflective practice and explore the potential of peer support for promoting resilience
