Seattle, Washington 98103


Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate if lifespan integration (LI) therapy reduces posttraumatic stress symptoms following a motor vehicle accident (MVA) trauma


Study summary:

Studies estimate a substantial proportion of MVA survivors, ranging from 9.4% to 59.9%, will develop PTSD following an accident (Blanchard & Hickling, 2004). Based on conservative estimates, past research, indicates that MVA-related PTSD may affect 2.5 to 7 million persons in the United States (Blanchard & Hickling). Furthermore, two seminal epidemiological studies (Kessler et al., 1995; Norris, 1992) that focused on causes of adult PTSD identified MVAs as the most frequent trauma resulting in PTSD. For these reasons, MVA-resultant PTSD represents a significant public health problem that needs not only to be thoroughly understood, but addressed with successful mental health treatment options (Beck & Coffey, 2007; Blanchard & Hickling, 1997, 2004; Bryant et al., 1998; Taylor et al., 1999; Taylor et al., 2001). Although there is empirical literature on the treatment of PTSD following an MVA, additional efficacious and rigorously conducted studies with statistical underpinnings are required to determine the results that can be expected from alternative models of care (Beck & Coffey; Blanchard & Hickling, 1997, 2004).

Inclusion Criteria: - Involved in or witnessed a car accident at least 6 months ago. - PTSD or distress or impairment in important areas of functioning following the car accident Exclusion Criteria: - moderate or severe head injury - current mental health treatment for the MVA-related problem - severe chronic pre-injury mental health problems
