Therapy for  Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of an enhanced cognitive behaviour therapy program for adults suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Individuals can participate in the program if they are 18 years of age or over and have been involved in, or witnessed a traumatic event (e.g. car accident, sexual assault, physical assault, dog attack, mugging, etc.) at least 1 month ago.

 

What does the study involve?

 

The research involves an initial assessment interview during which participants are asked about their life experiences and any symptoms they may be experiencing. Participants are then offered up to 15 free individual therapy sessions with a trained therapist. The research also involves a follow-up interview immediately after treatment and 6-months after treatment.
