OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- A new study at Creighton University is looking for a few good men, women and children who are military veterans or have witnessed violence to be a part of a clinical trial for post-traumatic stress disorder.

Psychology Professor Amy Badura-Brack, PhD, of Creighton University, the lead investigator, received a $1.2 million grant from At Ease USA for Attention Control Training clinical trials, an innovative therapy for military veterans with PTSD. Through a partnership with the Women’s Center for Advancement (WCA) the study will also be available for women and children who have been a victim of or have witnessed violence.

The free computer training is quick and simple and may be able to reduce symptoms of PTSD. A stipend is available for study participants.
