Liminal Platform: Virtual Reality for Resilience, Emotional Regulation and Wellbeing in Schools
This session focuses on the Liminal Platform, an award winning neuroscience-based virtual reality platform that is being used in schools to elicit emotional change ‘on demand’ to students. The platform consists of calming, energising, pain relieving and awe-inspiring experiences which are being used by school counsellors and in the classroom. Melbourne-based virtual reality company Liminal tracks the effectiveness of each experience based on psychometric feedback provided by students. In this presentation, Nick Busietta (Liminal’s Managing Director) will provide an overview of the Liminal Platform, how it is being used in schools and the results achieved to date.
