Excerpts from the Executive Summary:
Results: All measures showed statistically significant reductions in distress. Warrior Camp participants experienced relief from PTSD and depression of a large to medium magnitude and relief from adult attachment-related difficulties and Moral Injury to a medium to small magnitude.
However, the first time the analysis was conducted on Moral Injury data the result was so large that it was re-run with a more conservative
test so as to be more in line with the rest of the data.
Conclusions: The outcomes monitoring examination of WC showed that participants experienced improvement that was statistically significant
and substantive for PTSD, depression, adult attachment and Moral Injury.
Implications: Trauma and Resiliency Resources, Inc.'s Warrior Camp is a unique program targeted to treat the effects of combat including trauma and Moral Injury... These results make a potentially significant contribution to the literature on short-term, intensive treatments for military service members and veterans who have been exposed to combat. Research is limited on the topic of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and this study makes a substantial contribution in this regard.
