Tel Aviv U. research on PTSD to be implemented in the IDF and considered by US military

Computerized attention training developed by Tel Aviv University researchers and the Israel Defense Forces Medical Corps reduced to a third the risk of battleground soldiers developing post-trauma stress disorder. Based on the technique’s efficacy, proven with veterans of the 2014 Operation Protective Edge, the IDF will incorporate such exercises in the basic training of all ground troops.

The study, published Tuesday in Psychological Medicine, is being studied closely by the US Army, which is reportedly considering implementing the psychological training for its soldiers.
