Dr. Glenn Albright is a clinical psychologist and the Co-founder / Director of Research at Kognito, a health simulation company that has trained thousands of education staff in the U.S. on how to properly converse with students that exhibit at-risk behavior and properly refer them to counseling services. Glenn joins host Mike Palmer to dive into how the use of virtual characters in scenario-based interactive simulation can in some cases unlock better outcomes than traditional, live training.
We muse a bit about the future of healthcare simulations, gaming, and VR. Then Glenn concludes by sharing his passion for helping educators learn how to get better at trauma-informed interactions with students in a thought-provoking conversation about the future of behavioral health simulations like Kognito.
