Researchers Think It Has Promise

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.

    I have worked with Dr. Vern Woolf for over 20 years.
    His PHD at BYU was on how the mind stores information.
    His 11 years of research discovered our memories are holographic and have a maturation process. Immature ones create downdraft responses automatic thoughts. He subsequently found a way to mature those thought forms into updraft responses in life. It is a process he named Tracking. Takes about one hour and is permanent. Like a Caterpillar becomes a butterfly once it is transformed it never goes back. Based on quantum physics. That is the cliff notes version. I would like offer my help and volunteer to teach that process. It is mechanical in function in that put this in get that out. Easy to learn how to teach the process. Based on complex science but easy to use like an Airliner. No need to know how planes fly to ride in one. Another helpful process is Self Parenting by Dr. John Pollard. (Selfparenting.com) I wrote the forward. I am willing to help our vets any way I can to stop the suicides. I am an Air Force vet.
