Using VR for Life-Changing Purposes

Christophe Leske, Consultant and Developer,

Christophe Leske will present how coaching individuals in VR should and could be done, using a flexible and adaptable 3d environment which provides tools that could get modeled according to the clients specifications. What is a feasible approach to the process, and how do we bootstrap the creation of said tools or environments as a self-defined goal using the methodology discussed itself?

A 47-year old French-German developer with an interest in psychology and new technologies, Christophe Leske is interested in exploring the possibilities of interactive 3d visualization for coaching and therapeutic purposes, using different techniques like timelines and SMART goal setting and visualization.
