    Background

    Background:
    Complex social competencies, such as empathy, the ability to reflect or to constructively solve conflicts, are key in a contemporary work environment which is characterized by complex forms of interaction. This is the basis for our motivation to investigate novel forms of learning and training, which include emotional experiences in order to effect a sustainable increase in social competencies and, consequently, improve teamwork. Weaknesses of existing methods for promoting social competencies, such as a sole focus on cognitive stimuli, are specifically addressed through the use of virtual reality (VR).
    Aims:
    In a highly interdisciplinary process, this project examines how social skills (e.g. active listening, empathic change of perspective, etc.) can be trained using VR scenarios. The target group are middle management staff charged with a high number of coordination tasks, whose social skills impact the quality of the working conditions of the entire team they are responsible for. Based on the training approach of the consulting company 4dimensions, which focuses on optimizing team collaboration, a research prototype will be developed for the study.

    Die Offene Tür - Mental Health Project

    • Project Number: LBG 01
    • Project Lead: Beate Schrank, Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences / Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapeutic Medicine (University Hospital Tulln), Beate Schrank, Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences / D.O.T. - Die offene Tür (The Open Door)
    • Project Partner: Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft
    • Duration: 54 months starting from 01.01.2018

    Background

    Social connectedness in adolescents is an important protective factor for health. Adolescent children of parents with mental illness (COPMI) are at risk of poor social connectedness, especially in periods of school transition. In COPMI and non-COPMI early adolescents, we seek to (i) understand mechanisms of social connectedness, (ii) improve social connectedness by enhancing social-emotional skills and appropriate peer connections through a digital hub, (iii) tailor the hub to maximise individuals’ gains, (iv) facilitate related positive outcomes, such as reductions in stigma via opportunity for positive COPMI-non-COPMI contact. Profound literature reviews and ongoing stakeholder and expert consultation will guide the design of a blended intervention comprising the online hub housing digital experiences and peer matching, and complementary school/service-based social wellbeing programmes. A pilot evaluation will test the intervention acceptability, feasibility and processes of changes; and explore the efficacy of the hub in two versions, i.e. standard and an individually adaptive mode.
