PTSD: National Center for PTSD
STAIR Coach supplements psychotherapy using Skills Training in Affective & Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR).
STAIR is an evidence-based cognitive behavioral form of psychotherapy designed to help with emotion regulation and interpersonal relationship problems that traumatized people commonly experience.
STAIR is ideal for addressing two of the most common, and burdensome, problems faced by those living with PTSD: mood changes (e.g., anger, sadness, anxiety) and social challenges (e.g., communicating with friends/loved ones, changes in family relationships, successfully navigating workplace relationships).
STAIR provides users with concrete skills for managing complex emotions and becoming more socially engaged.
