The Teaching Recovery Techniques manual (TRT) has the “potential to ameliorate children’s trauma symptoms during situations of ongoing violence”, is the conclusion of an article on one of our Palestine projects.

The first study on TRT to be carried out in an area of ongoing violence, showed that intervention students reported significant decreases in PTSD, grief and depression.

Randomized control trial of a CBT Trauma Recovery program in Palestinian schools (Barron, I., Abdullah, G. & Smith, P.) has been published inJournal of Loss and Trauma.
