PRIVACY - Your privacy is protected and your name and any other identifying information are only used for the informed consent and ethical requirements in case you wished to be removed from the study at any time for any reason. Identifying information will not be included in the analysis or published results.
SAFETY - This study uses a safety screening question to ensure people are stable enough to take the survey. After the safety questionnaire, it sorts candidates into the appropriate groups and qualified for the study. The study measures experiences of a trauma that occurred 2 years ago or more, to ensure that enough time has passed to allow for integration and post-traumatic growth. Identifying information is collected because it is required to by the IRB/Ethics Board to ensure that a person can have themselves removed from the study at any time for any reason.

Origins of this research
David is conducting research on traumatic memory modeled after a Harvard based Study ( doi:10.1016/j.paid.2011.02.012 ) that investigated Past Life Memories and found significant differences in death anxiety and a greater sense of well being between groups. He has a strong interest in traumatic memory, post-traumatic growth, and investigating potential therapeutic effects of Past Life Memory using the socio-cognitive model employed in several Harvard studies. It is possible that PLM may have some therapeutic effectiveness at reducing the impact trauma has on peoples lives despite not understanding the cognitive mechanisms, similar to how EMDR is effective but without understanding at how it works in the brain. This research is a simple investigation to explore differences in post-trauma growth scores in populations of people who Report PLM and this who do not.
