Ecological Momentary Assessment of Posttraumatic Stress Symptoms in Service Members Undergoing Rehabilitation

Center scientists are in the formative stages of a new study using an innovative electronic, hand-held device and methodology, Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA). EMA is used to examine symptoms of PTSD and depression “in real time” in service members undergoing rehabilitation. The study, Ecological Momentary Assessment of Posttraumatic Stress Symptoms in Service Members Undergoing Rehabilitation, will provide a new perspective on identifying PTSD symptom patterns and environmental influences that may foster more effective treatments.
