Full Professor Lecture - Matthew Liptak
Experiencing trauma puts individuals at risk for a range of mental health conditions such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Given the lifelong impairment that can be associated with PTSD providing treatment shortly after a trauma can prove challenging. The delivery of such treatments, however, are costly and should be given to those at greatest risk for PTSD. As such, there is a need for efficient methods to determine who is at greatest risk. Mobile devices, such as smartphones, offer a novel method by which to identify those at high risk and ultimately deliver such interventions. Results from several studies on the development and implementation of mobile devices to assess post-trauma mental health risk will be presented. The implications of using mobile devices as a method to deliver post-trauma assessment and intervention will be discussed.
