MEM-AV: A VR-Based Approach to Improve Autobiographical Memory Retrieval in Addiction

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivista

Abstract

The study of autobiographical memories (AMs)—that are intimately tied to one’s personal history—has been explored in populations suffering from addiction. Existing research suggests that individuals with addiction face similar challenges to those with other mental disorders when attempting to retrieve their AMs, often encountering memories that are uncomfortable.1 In particular, patients in drug rehabilitation centers are reluctant to share their memories, in part due to fear of stigma and potential legal repercussions. This concern fosters a heightened state of vigilance that inhibits the spontaneous sharing of personal experiences. In addition, a pervasive distrust of psychotherapists and caregivers, especially at the beginning of the rehabilitation journey, further hinders the development of autobiographical awareness—a key element for mental health improvement.
