PTSD Research at HRI

Testing a novel treatment to help first responders impacted by PTSD

HRI is recruiting public safety personnel in Ontario who have been impacted by trauma to participate in an experimental trial of Goal Management Training (GMT) that will be conducted online. The study aims to reduce cognitive difficulties and improve everyday functioning in public safety personnel with PTSD. This includes fire fighters, police, correctional and probation officers, paramedics, emergency dispatchers, and nurses. For a full list of eligible professions, please refer to the related WSIB legislation.  For more information, see the infographic below.

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all study activities will be completed online. We hold the health and safety of our study participants in the highest priority, and are pleased that participants will be able to take part in this research from the safety of their own homes.
