Let's Beat PTSD Together!
Our individual and collective experiences helping others with Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories technologies demonstrates that RTM methods are effective in facilitating change, promoting personal enrichment, and providing symptom relief.
There are currently thousands of veterans across the world suffering from the damaging effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In the US alone, it is estimated that 22 military and ex-military commit suicide EVERY DAY. During initial research studies, the RTM protocol has been shown to treat PTSD in five hours. The patients are able to return to the lives they lived before the trauma.
Every year thousands of returning military, state and local police officers, emergency workers and trauma survivors suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a devastating condition that can destroy lives and despite being “invisible” externally, is as real as a devastating physical wound for those that suffer its disabling effects.
Rolling out a nationally needed training program for licensed Mental Health Professionals to become certified in RTM.
More than 256,000 veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan have been treated for PTSD.
Up to 40% of returning veterans affected with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder remain untreated.
Approximately 2 million children have one or both parents in the military and are impacted by potential PTSD.
PTSD costs Americans more than $15 billion.
A Solution: RTM
Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories (RTM) uses a short visualization process to retrieve and alter the memory. It is a stress-free method of treatment that has been shown to relieve nightmares and flashback symptoms of PTSD for over 90% of those treated, in less than half the time of current therapies, often in fewer than two or three sessions.
With immediate RTM intervention, PTSD can be relieved, and our veterans and their families are spared related issues that often develop, including alcohol and drug abuse, family and career disintegration, and even suicide. The belief is that RTM, administered early, will remove years of suffering and disability for our veterans and billions of dollars in extended years of payment for PTSD treatment. It is non-traumatizing and remits the anxious elements of the disorder.
RTM is an innovative, and cost-effective treatment for PTSD, but it is not enough. PTSD has far-reaching impacts in other areas of a veteran’s life. Full clinical treatment for related problems is needed. The therapy, currently in the research and verification phases, has shown dramatic indications of success and projections for additional research are also positive.
The RTM Protocol
RTM begins by questioning the client until he or she responds physiologically. Typically, this includes changes in breathing, heart rate and vocal pitch. The response is only allowed to continue until the physiology changes. It is stopped before re-traumatization can occur.
The client is then walked through 3 levels of dissociation and image exercises that cause the memories to be reconsolidated.
When the trauma can be talked about with no discomfort, the intervention is presumed to have worked.
RTM is notable because:
- It causes little discomfort to the client.
- It can be administered in any normal quiet room by Masters level counselors after a 4 day intensive and 3 month mentored training.
- It does not involve drugs or costly equipment.
- It is a relatively quick therapy.
- Anecdotal evidence indicates long-term efficacy.
In clinical trials RTM removed the nightmare and flashback symptoms of PTSD in less than half the time of current therapies, often in less than two or three sessions.
RTM administered shortly after veterans return home can remove the symptoms and stop PTSD from developing.
