Viktoriia Tsokota – CEO of ARKI GROUP represents the information platform of Cyberpsychology, which allows you to exchange knowledge and projects at the intersection of information and communication technologies (ICT) and psychology.
Improvement of psychological health is one of the key tasks of our time. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental illness is a socio-economic burden for taxpayers. Based on WHO forecasts, the socio-economic costs of treating mental illness in the future will be higher than for treatment of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
The development of new ICTs and their active application within the framework of psychology makes it possible to reduce the level of social and economic losses and improve the lives of thousands of patients and their relatives.
Cyberpsychology studies the behavior, functioning of the human mind, interaction and communication in the human-ICT system, covering the culture of computers, virtual, augmented environments and mobile applications, as well as Internet use.
ARKI GROUP offers scientists, developers and investors the use of the Cyberpsychology Platform for establishing fruitful cooperation and information exchange.
The use of the possibilities of ICT for health (Telemental health), within the framework of Cyberpsychology, allows to expand access to psychological assistance, regardless of location and obstacles to treatment. Human interest in technical innovations due to the novelty effect translates the unpleasant process of treatment into an exciting game procedure. Achievements in scientific and technological progress increase the effectiveness of psychological care and its degree of confidentiality.
Currently, ARKI GROUP carries out activities on the Platform of Cyberpsychology in seven main areas (but we aren’t limited, add new ones, and we will help you find like-minded people):
Psychological impact of Social Networking Sites and Internet;
Computerized CBT (cCBT);
Internet–mediated CBT (iCBT);
Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy (VRET)
Augmented Reality Exposure Therapy (ARET));
