Avatar Hub

What is the Avatar Hub?

The Avatar Hub is an online 3D virtual reality programme that helps users improve their consequential thinking and perspective taking.

How does it work?

Our programmes have been carefully designed to cater for all learning styles. We achieved this by including into our programmes:

  • Virtual Reality technology
  • Audio bars for those with reading difficulties
  • Visual content such as videos and diagrams
  • Written instructions
  • Case examples
  • Skills practice
  • Downloadable content.

Please note this functionality is only available on a Desktop PC

How effective are the programmes?

IC LTD are the only company that have tested CCBT based approaches with an offender population in England and the Isle of Man.  To date our average results have been:

  • 71% showed a positive change in pre and post questionnaire scoring (measuring change in thinking and attitudes)
  • 78% of users would recommend it
  • 73% of users report that they found it useful.

What happens when you finish the programme?

When the user finishes the programme, a post programme report, This is sent to the email address that has been provided.  This will also include all the information input into the programme.

At the end of the programme, the user will also be able to download a certificate of completion and access all the worksheets from all the sessions for a period of 6 months (from the point of completion).

Testimonial

“This is a great programme and one that I feel would benefit our inmates immensely. By them accessing this programme I feel it would give our inmates the following:

  • A greater chance of retention
  • They can see the scenario play out
  • They have a visual reference
  • A better understanding of how the choices they have made, where not necessarily the right ones
  • An option to replay the scenario with different actions/reactions
  • Interactive gameplay, most will have at some stage been on a PlayStation and played a real-time game and therefore be familiar with this format
  • Real-time feedback
  • Improves Problem Solving

"The intervention hub is a very useful tool to use with participants" "The focussed work is excellent and helps to engage the participant." "I like the structure it gives to appointments with participants- enabling them to complete meaningful work and contribute towards Rehabilitation Activity Rehabilitation days." "I like the structured format and it helps to keep sessions focused and relevant. The exercises are also clear and help to explain things to participants and use their own examples." "The anger management has helped loads of my participants"
"Upon completion of the Phoenix Domestic Abuse Awareness Program our service user reported the Domestic Abuse and Victim Awareness courses on the online hub were a great way to continue his learning. Based on his experience of the hub he asked if he could also complete the 'Cannabis Awareness' which he felt could be of benefit to him also."

James Lilly, Perpetrator Officer, Phoenix Domestic Abuse Services
"Just had my first Intervention Hub completer! He did the ETE course and said that he found it really useful and actually enjoyed it! He made a point of saying how it was different from previous ‘ticky-box’ courses he’s done before, as it was more interactive and goal-setting; he’s kept his own written record of his plan so that he can review his progress in the coming months."

Jon Cunningham, PSO, DTV CRC Stockton Team
"The Intervention Hub has a wide range of programmes and has been an invaluable tool to help us address problematic behaviour linked to offending with our Service Users. Feedback has shown that both Probation staff and Service Users have found it easy to use, engaging and extremely useful in structuring one to one sessions and tackling issues linked to offending. I would strongly recommend the Intervention Hub to anyone looking to work with offending."
