RESEARCH AND RECOGNITION TEAM
The Research and Recognition Team is comprised of a group of professionals passionate about the furthering of research to successfully treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and related clinical issues. Our individual and collective experiences enable us to help others with new methods to facilitate change, enrichment, and symptom relief. Multitudes of suffering clients don’t presently have access to the effective methods and skills that practitioners of RTM use. Only by researching and validating the efficacy of this protocol as an effective treatment and change technology will it achieve the wider recognition among therapy, education and health care professionals that is warranted.
