Do we have any idea what this app has achieved , Is there any feedback one can research.
I am thinking about making an app taken from my self help book recently released on Amazon as an ebook THE TRAUMA TRAP. The help in there is based on 22 years clinical experience treating PTSD. As a hard back it sold 60.000 copies in japan after the KObe earthquake. It contains the Rewind technique which files the traumatic event once and for all.
To see testimonials about the Rewind please go to www.davidmuss.co.uk.
I am interested to know how helpful an app could be.
