A news article came out today saying researchers are working on a very simple computer game to help veterans suffering from post traumatic stress. It sounds simple: you look at a negative word or face (ones that you associate with bad memories or stress) and neutral words and then you complete a simple task. The idea is that the association between the negative and neutral become closer together and this will reduce the effects of PTSD in daily life.
Seems basic. We hope it works. If the results are positive we would love to offer it to huddl members. The good news is the research regarding post traumatic stress is increasing and leading to more help for those suffering. In the meantime, it still feels good to connect with others going through similar things at huddl.org.
