A Research-Based Approach to PTSD

We at 22Zero are passionate and committed to bringing relief to those suffering from PTSD. We already know that our approach works, we are seeing it in action DAILY!  We are now working continuously to add to an ever-growing body of evidence and research to validate what our HEROES have experienced.

Below you will find the initial report prepared by Dr. Martha Corvea, our Research Director, and our findings. Data collection links for our  Resiliency Counselors/Coaches, click the appropriate link to fill out data for PSSI5 and EMP to be submitted for research and publication.

“According to the LEOs who participated in TRP interventions, defined improvements in daily functioning were sustainable; when asked 3 weeks post TRP interventions, ALL reported having experienced positive improvements in relationships, mood, and selfcare routines.”

Diverse Personal Represented

The case studies participating in the model’s testing were four (4) active duty, thirty (30) veterans, six (6) firefighters, seven (7) law enforcement officers, four  (4) medical personnel, nineteen (19) counselors, and thirty (30) civilians.


Total Case Studies: 100


Gender Representation

There were forty-four (44) Males and fifty-six (56) Females represented.


Important to Include Citizens

We felt it imperative to include civilian case studies to show TRP’s value not only for the military, veterans, and first responders but also to citizens.

Important Notes

With the one-hundred (100) case studies, the average PTSD Symptom Scale Interview-5 test score was 54.33, the floor threshold for PTSD is twenty (20), the ceiling is eighty (80). After completing the requested sessions, the average score dropped to 2.12, a clinically significant number.

Most of the group exhibited no symptoms associated with PTSD after the sessions.

Eleven (11) of the case studies only requested one (1) session, forty (40) requested two (2) sessions, forty-eight (48) requested three (3) sessions, and only a single case subject request a fourth (4) session. An accumulative average number of sessions requested for TRP was 2.39 sessions to achieve the clinical threshold of no symptoms associated with PTSD.


The Averages & Results

  • The average PSSI-5 score for these one-hundred (100) case studies before TRP was 54.33.
  • The Average PSSI-5 score after TRP for same one-hundred (100) cases is 2.12.


I wanted to share with the group. I’m working with a veteran that has been suffering greatly with PTSD-homeless a few times, unemployed, etc. We had one session and cleared anger using the Emotions Management Process (EMP) only. He came in for the next session and told me he had had the “best 4 days in 2 decades!” Now on to the Trauma Resiliency Protocol (TRP).

My best friend died in my arms in the jungles of Vietnam in 1969; we were infantrymen.  I have lived with grief and trauma every day since then.  I spent a little time with Dan Jarvis, and he helped me reframe my grief over the death of my buddy in about 10 minutes.  I let it go using the Emotions Management Process (EMP), then we cleared three traumas in a single 45-minute session using the Trauma Resiliency Protocol (TRP), my sleep is back to normal, and my triggers are gone.  This is life-changing.  Thanks, Dan and 22ZERO!

I've never felt so light, if that makes sense. It's like my trauma from the past is a book I read, not me.

I came to Jesse (Board Member of 22Zero) because I was absolutely paralyzed with fear due to PTS from a traumatic childhood. My relationships were near non-existent, I barely left my house, and the coaching business I'd been trying to get off the ground was going nowhere. My anxiety was constant, and I felt easily overwhelmed; just thinking about going outside of my comfort zone triggered an anxiety attack. I felt like I was running while tied to a tree, desperate to move forward but was being held back by my past. In my TRP session with Jesse, he explained to me what he did, how the session would go, and what I could expect afterwards; he was confident and knowledgeable while also being understanding and kind as he took me through the process. I had many traumatic events throughout my childhood that on a scale of 0 - 10 were mostly 10's where 10 is extreme fear/anxiety, and by the end of our 90-minute session, all of these 10's were set to 0. My paralyzing anxiety shifted to empowerment in just one 90-minute session with Jesse. I've never felt more confident and full of joy than I have right now. I've been told that I look like I'm glowing and that my energy feels 40 lbs. lighter. The thought of going outside of my comfort zone now lights me up and excites me, and I'm easily able to take action that I never would have before. I'm not terrified of the world anymore and I'm no longer tied to that tree. Working with Jesse gave me my life back and I can't wait to see where it goes now that I'm free. If you're not sure this method is for you, I implore you to suspend doubt and give yourself this gift, you won't regret it.

I am the founder of 22Zero, Dan Jarvis and I recently called to check up on a former firefighter that had PTSD and Panic Attacks; we ran the Tactical Resiliency Process (TRP) and Emotions Management Process (EMP) four months ago. The TRP is for the PTSD and the EMP was for the panic attacks.  His reply is priceless:

I am a 28 yr veteran of law enforcement. I had no idea all the events I experienced during my career had such an impact on me, until I retired.
Once retired, my brain got to slow down a bit and I started recalling various events that caused me to feel anxious, insecure, on edge. But not on edge as in anger, but rather more of a fight or flight feeling, on guard, protective. I wasn't sleeping well and there was a heaviness. That's kind of hard to explain, but it was that, or maybe a darkness?  I met with Dr. Janell Royster with 22Zero and we began talking. Not only was she a pleasure to speak with, but she is patient took me through the process. I didn't need to talk about specifics and rehash triggers. We worked through the process and it was empowering, relieving and tiring. I felt good by the end of our session, but tired.  That night, I slept through without waking. That was the first time in a very long time that I slept a restful night's sleep and without waking up in the middle.  Today, it's pouring but it's a brighter day. I feel lighter and clearer. I know I'm on the right track and know Dr. Royster, Dan Jarvis and everyone at 22Zero is there for me and others who have served our communities and our country.

My Name is Julie Walker and I am a counsellor in Australia. As the mother of a Veteran my goal is to  help as many Veterans as I possibly can. Many of the Veterans I see are under the age of thirty and are living with debilitating PTSD. The suicide rate for Veterans in Australia is ridiculously high. I am  constantly researching, looking for ways to help the young people I see so together with my husband  we developed an Equine Acceptance Therapy Program for Veterans and First Responders.  

I stumbled across a post by Dan Jarvis at 22Zero about eliminating the symptoms of PTSD called Tactical Resiliency. I emailed Dan immediately but since I am in Australia and Dan is in  America, I was expecting to wait a while before I received a response. Dan emailed me back instantly.  After introducing myself to Dan and expressing my interest in learning more about the process Dan  advised me there was a training session for counsellors coming up within the next week. I joined there and then. During training every participant had the opportunity to personally experience the TRAUMA RESILIENCY-PROTOCOL and the EMOTIONS MANAGEMENT PROCESS. This was amazing. I don’t know  what I expected but I was so surprised when looking back at previous trauma I was no longer triggered.  The first person I ran the process on was my husband. His response was amazing. I started running  through the process with clients who I have a great rapport and trust with. Again, fantastic results. I  now discuss this process with every client I see and give them the opportunity to participate when  they are ready. Most clients can not wait. This has extended to First Responders, Cancer Survivors and  clients with limited belief, self-esteem, abandonment and guilt issues.  At present I am the only person in Australia trained in delivering the Tactical Resiliency Process and I  am so proud that,  TOGETHER WE ARE CONTRIBUTING TO A PURPOSE AND RESTORING THE LIVES OF AUSTRALIA’S AND AMERICA’S SONS AND DAUGHTERS THAT PUT A UNIFORM ON FOR A PURPOSE MUCH BIGGER THAN SELF.
