Lay Description

The purpose of the study is to analyze how brain functioning improves when symptoms of posttraumatic stress improve during psychotherapy. Teens who have experienced trauma and are bothered by symptoms of stress will be provided with the ‘gold-standard’ psychotherapy for trauma, at no-cost. They will have brain scans using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) before, during, and after the treatment: a total of 4 brain scans over the 20-week treatment. MRI is safe and does not use radiation or injections.
