Dear Colleague,

Thank you for participating in this study. Participation is voluntary and anonymous. It should take about 5-10 minutes. There are no known risks, no costs, and no reimbursements. You will indicate your consent for participating by completing and submitting this survey.

The focus is on how and why therapists choose to work on a given trauma memory first. The primary benefit is contributing to knowledge that can be used by trauma therapists to make treatment as effective, efficient, and well-tolerated as possible.

Multiple choice questionnaires can be frustrating because often the real answer does not fit any of the choices. This is especially likely here because (to the best of my knowledge) this is the first study on this topic, and I may not know the parameters of possible responses. Therefore I want to encourage you to include any comments or explanations that might help me to better understand your response.

If you have any questions or concerns about the research, please contact me.

Sincerely,
Ricky Greenwald, PsyD, Principal Investigator
