Clinically tested methods and backed by research from the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Kenneth Yeager developed the methods used in the S.T.A.R. app, a Ph.D., L.I.S.W. at The Ohio State University. The research and testing found that the S.T.A.R. training method for vicarious trauma led to a decrease in burnout measures sustained for several months. The S.T.A.R. app uses a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and cognitive processing therapy techniques. These approaches help to address common effects of exposure to trauma; these include but are not limited to hyper-vigilance avoidance, trust, control, and intimacy (sharing and processing exposure to a trauma with others). As the stress responses progress, individuals become at greater risk of depression, anxiety, substance misuse, sleep disturbance, and unexplained anger, to name a few. The app provides an effective way to begin to understand how to manage your response to stress and trauma.
