The BEAR Therapeutic Program for Women
Trial ID: NCT04418778
The current study aims to test a novel therapeutic intervention for women who have a history of interpersonal trauma. The Building Empowerment and Resilience (BEAR) Therapeutic group incorporates psychological skills, psychoeducation, and physical empowerment training, all within a therapeutic process. It will be implemented at several different sites, with women who have experienced interpersonal trauma (physical, sexual, or emotional abuse/neglect). We aim to understand how this program effects one's self-efficacy and whether the program can reduce rates mental health problems (such as depression and anxiety) and reduce the rates of revictimization.
