A comprehensive psychological intervention to improve community and vocational reintegration following burn injury and other trauma.


We are currently recruiting individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder related to a burn injury.


The purpose of this study is to treat symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) resulting from burn trauma using traditional treatment.


The burn intervention study offers 14 sessions of free individual treatment for burn survivors with posttraumatic stress disorder. The treatment protocol focuses on reduction of the symptoms of PTSD, while simultaneously introducing skills to address the numerous sequelae of burn injury including feelings of depression, coping with scarring and/or disfigurement, reintegrating back into work, community, and social circles, and improving general functioning and quality of life.
