This paper is a condensed two-page version of a submission presented as part of the CHI21 Workshop Program entitled: Design and Creation of Inclusive User Interactions Through Immersive Media. As information relating to our preliminary findings is on-going what we offer here is a summary-insight to our work. The problem we seek to address links to a lack of new settings in mental healthcare, where atechnology-rich culture can be embraced and provide an experience that is complimentary or alternative to what currently exists. We have created a digital therapeutic intervention and situated this in an Immersive Interactive Virtual Environment (IIVE). To facilitate discussion we have collated qualitative data drawn from interviews with experts who work in the field of mental healthcare. We are currently conducting interviews with experts with experience of trauma. Our results and analysis as part of our human-centered study are currently being assembled as a full paper.
