PTSD study

“The beginning is the most important part of the work”
– Plato

The dēhp® therapeutic study begins November 5th

We are seeking partners to collaborate with our study on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a growing problem with the ongoing conflicts in the world. One in five veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a number that was over 300,000 veterans by the end of 2012, and continues to grow.

The social and economic costs of PTSD are immense. First year treatment alone costs the government $8,300 per person, or more than $2 billion so far. Suicides among active-duty military personnel averaged one per day in 2012. Veterans now account for 20 percent of all suicides in the U.S., with the youngest veterans, those 24 and under taking their lives at four times the rate of other veteran age groups.

Our study is an excellent opportunity for non-profit organizations to participate in a research pilot intended to demonstrate the efficacy of the dēhp® technique. By participating with us you have the opportunity to be a part of an innovative study that will not only transform the lives of Veterans, but the lives of individuals coping with PTSD.


PTSD STUDY process

The dēhp® technique is a transformative process focused on stimulating the innate intelligence of the human body. Designed to help individuals process buried emotions from traumatic experiences, the dēhp® technique will prove to be a highly effective tool in treating individuals suffering from PTSD.

Our study will use the Clinician Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS) to measure each subject’s response to the dēhp® technique. The CAPS method of assessment is the highest standard of measurement used by mental health professionals to evaluate individuals with PTSD. The data from the dēhp® technique pilot study will be published and used as evidence to fund additional studies through grants.

Details on the dēhp® technique research study

There are four phases to the pilot study

  • Each phase takes a total of 10 days to complete with the following timeline:
    • week one, 5 days of participation, 8 hours per day for a total of 40 hours
    • week two, 3 days of participation, 8 hours per day for a total of 24 hours
    • week three, 1 day of participation, 8 hours per day for a total of 8 hours
    • week four, 1 day of participation, 8 hours per day for a total of 8 hours

The total amount of training per phase of the pilot is 80 hours.
