He believes the actual VR activities of planning and transitioning to part-time employment, working both individually and within a group, along with the twice-a-week job club where people can meet others like themselves who are trying to reenter the workforce and learn job-seeking skills together, are all beneficial to individuals in terms of countering depression. Run time: 42 seconds.
