The Tackling Traumatic Stress programme was available online and in hardcopy. It consisted of 11 modules, some being mandatory and others optional, allowing tailoring of the intervention to meet an individual’s needs. Mandatory modules included psycho-education, grounding techniques, relaxation, cognitive restructuring, in vivo and imaginal exposure, and relapse prevention. Optional modules provided advice on behavioural activation, sleep hygiene, anger management and substance use. The intervention showed promise in terms of reducing traumatic stress symptoms, supporting the feasibility of a phase II Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT).
