Trauma and Spirituality
Dissertation research project of CPAR doctoral candidate Cecile Gunn Desmond.
The purpose of this research study is to improve treatment for trauma. We want to understand how traumatic experiences affect people’s spirituality so that we can better help people heal from the experience of trauma. We encourage people of all races, ethnicities, religious faiths, and those who do not consider themselves as spiritual to participate in this research so that your voice may be heard. We hope to learn from your experience and apply it to help others.
If you are over 18 years old, speak English, and have not suffered traumatic brain injury, you are invited to take a 20-minute on-line survey about your traumatic experience and your spirituality.
After you complete the survey, you may choose a charity to receive a donation.
NOTE: This study has been approved by the Boston University Institutional Review Board.
Thank you for participating.
