Tactical Resiliency Process (TRP) Research Group One

Over September 12-13 a weekend, 12 Licensed Mental Health Professionals gave 17 hours away from their families to learn a new skill, called the Tactical Resiliency Process (TRP).  Two of the therapists are from Central Florida, and ten are from Virginia.  We expect to collect data for research on at least 120 clients for the second study, which will publish with an Independent Review Board.

Testing the Model

Our testing of model study one showed a 98.4 percent success rate. 98.4 percent of 102 clients no longer qualified for a clinical diagnosis of PTSD.  The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Symptom Scale Interview-5 (PSSI5) measurement device for PTSD is administered before session one.  Then again, after successful completion of the last sessions of the Tactical Resiliency Process (TRP). (1-5 sessions)

Success

There are concerns with such a high success rate, first is believability. The current paradigm for mental health does not allow for anything more significant than 40 percent success using rudimentary and inadequate research studies. However, there is promising research with the Research and Recognition Project, with their Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories (RTM) Protocol. Five replication studies involving veteran populations show, on average, 92 percent success at eliminating the emotions associated with PTSD. Their process also will eliminate a clinical diagnosis based on scientifically measured scores.  They have a large study underway with Walter Reed, the Army’s main research hospital for PTSD. The Walter Reed Study is a comparison study with the RTM Protocol and Prolonged Exposure (PE) initiated by the Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine (CNRM). https://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ProvidedDocs/57/NCT03827057/ICF_000.pdf (This link gives the details of the study)

The research shows great promise for those who have PTSD, and we are excited to add to the collective body of research. The more scientific study to support alternative treatments will help to eliminate the academic failure with treatments that are long enduring and often traumatizing to the clients. What sets the TRP apart from other processes is there is zero content required to run TRP. No content allows for a peer to peer administration of the process with equal effect to a licensed counselor. It is gentle on the peer coach to not to have to listen to the trauma with a client. It is truly remarkable to watch a client with a Subjective Units of Distress (SUDs) number at a nine or ten, run the process, and end at a zero or one within 45 short minutes.

Emotions Clearing Technique (ECT)

Before, during, or after TRP, the coach can deploy the Emotions Clearing Technique (ECT). The job of the coach is to find the root cause of negative emotion and clear them. Negative emotions are those like anger, sadness, fear, shame, hurt, survivors’ guilt, rage, hate, abandonment, panic, or anxiety. The emotions can be reframed at the root cause and have profound changes in the client in how they react to these emotions.

Complex-PTSD

A person with Complex-PTSD can spend a couple of hours with a peer coach. Clients can eliminate all adverse emotional reactions with trauma and other negative emotions. The follow-up day is gratifying for the peer coach. Hearing how the sleep restoration happens so quickly and with nightmares and triggers dissipating, leaves a smile on the client and coach and the real magic is sleep restoration. It allows the client to start regenerating normal homeostasis, shutting off the fight or flight.

If you are a licensed mental health counselor and would like to learn our process, please feel free to contact us at dan@22zero.org. We offer Saturday and Sunday training; the weekend training allows licensed counselors to work during the week. Three days would allow you to learn both processes.

Our mission at 22zero is to heal our heroes. As of this publication, we are at 691.
