  • Have experienced any of the following reactions:
    • Distressing thoughts, memories or dreams
    • Anxiety
    • Difficulty sleeping
    • Physical reactions (nausea, racing heart) or emotional distress

This free counseling service is offered as part of a research project. This project will compare different treatment approaches to help people who have recently experienced a trauma.
