08:00 EDT 26th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Psychological Flexibility and Set-Shifting Among Veterans Participating in a Yoga Program: A Pilot Study."

Trauma-focused psychotherapies do not meet the needs of all veterans. Yoga shows some potential in reducing stress and perhaps even PTSD in veterans, although little is understood about the mechanisms of action. This study identifies preliminary correlates of change in PTSD and perceived stress for veterans participating in yoga.
