Abstract:This study aims to identify patients’, therapists’ and other stakeholders’ values for VR for forensic mental healthcare, which could become the foundation for the development of a VR application. The CeHRes Roadmap is used as a framework. An existing stakeholder identification was updated using desk-research and open-ended interviews with stakeholders. An online questionnaire was used, to understand the stakeholders’ likes, dislikes and suggestions for VR. Attributes and values were identified. A new more tangible idea for a VR application was made. Semi-structured interviews with patients and therapists were held to check if their values were represented within this idea. Stakeholders graded ideas for VR applications on average at 7.75 out of 10 and gave an PII-score of 5.48 out of 7. The open questions showed potential advantages, disadvantages and suggestions for VR. 43 attributes and 13 values for VR for forensic mental healthcare were constructed. A more tangible idea for a VR application was created. The stakeholders’ found the 13 values represented within this idea. However, they saw some improvements. The results of this study provide insight into values for VR for forensic mental healthcare. The results support the usability of the CeHRes Roadmap as a framework for VR development.
