Aim
Trauma is a precursor to many psychological conditions including PTSD and phobias. The RTM brief intervention can significantly reduce trauma and associated conditions.

Four (6%) lost the DSM diagnosis or were otherwise sub-clinical by dichotomous criteria (absence of flashbacks and nightmares).
