Evaluation of the Ukrainian-Language E-Course «Socio-Psychological Support of Adaptation of Veterans»
Satisfying the requirements of CBT-based information as an alignment with traditional psychotherapy methods the Ukrainian-language e-course “Socio-Psychological Support of Adaptation of Veterans” integrated into the app “Pocket Psychologist” was spotted as an appropriate tool for a prior self-help in PTSD prevention. The e-course itself contains practical information to challenge the unhelpful beliefs about the negative outcomes of various situations and involves the user into the therapeutic processes such as attention training, acceptance and tolerance training, and mindfulness (Gorbunova, et al., 2016). The purpose was to evaluate its efficacy in decreasing early post-traumatic symptoms.
