As part of the Government of Canada’s National Action Plan on Posttraumatic Stress Injuries, our team is offering and evaluating an Internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy pilot project, also known as ICBT, specifically tailored for current and former Public Safety Personnel (PSP), including border security agents, correctional workers, call centre operators/dispatchers, firefighters, paramedics, and police, called the PSP Wellbeing Course. This 8 week online treatment program, offered with optional weekly therapist support, is designed to improve depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress injuries.
This work is being conducted by the PSPNET team based at the University of Regina as part of the Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment (CIPSRT). The team is led by Dr. Heather Hadjistavropoulos, one of Canada’s leading scholars on ICBT and also the Executive Director of the Online Therapy Unit.
