The Foundation for Self Leadership is very pleased to announce that, following a rigorous independent review, it has approved the funding for a second study of IFS as a treatment of PTSD. This new large study will build on a previous pilot study of IFS and complex trauma, also funded by the Foundation through generous community support.
Referred to as Program for Alleviating and Resolving Trauma and Stress (PARTS Study), this rigorous Phase II randomized clinical trial will be formally launched on September 1, 2020. It will examine over the next two years IFS vs. a nature-based stress reduction program as a treatment for PTSD and opioid use. It will be conducted at the Harvard-affiliated Cambridge Health Alliance community mental health center in Massachusetts, USA.
