University of British Columbia UBC psychologists offer free post-trauma stress therapy

Description

In the first direct comparison study ever done, researchers who are also qualified therapists will evaluate the effectiveness of two traditional therapies (exposure therapy and relaxation training) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR, a controversial treatment created in the mid-1980s, combines conscious rapid eye movement and thoughts of the trauma. Although shown to be effective, it has not been directly compared to traditional treatments.
