IRRT Research Update
Our research study deadline has been extended through April to allow for more participation by qualified therapists. We have passed the halfway mark and are closing in on the finish. Our goal is to have at least 60 volunteer clients who have experienced trauma, sign a consent form and complete pre and post treatment assessments (the Post Traumatic Checklist PCL-C, the Beck Depression Inventory-Second Edition BDI-II and the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI)).
This critical study is open to any RRT Certified Practitioner (CP) who has had at least 100 hours of training (any combination of Level 1 & 2 weekends and/or retreats within the past 2 years) or one who has been practicing RRT for at least 2 years. CP therapists can submit up to 5 client packets. If you qualify for the study and can treat even one client, we would be grateful to have the utmost in diversity of therapists. If you would like to volunteer for the study (or can recommend another therapist), please contact me at Drsrichie@earthlink.net. If you still have the original client packets, please remember that our Study Administrator is Shanley Lawler, and she can be reached at 845-499-8573.
If you missed the January 31st case review conference call, be sure to read the transcripts and listen to the conference recording. Dr. Jon provided several new illustrations to help everyone better understand and work with clients with addictions and those who want to get their mind to work with focused intention.
