Dear Brenda,

Thank you for informing us about the special journal issue.
Indeed Clark and beck in their recent book (2010!) on anxiety disorders also supports your editorial position about the implications of PTSD.

My question to you and the forum is the following:

While we all know that anxiety contains of a significant physiological manifestation, very few studies has tried biofeedback - or any presentation of the physiological signal to the patient.

Yucha and Gilbert (2008) review few of the articles concerning biofeedback and anxiety and again - very little RCT studies. i am familiar with some recent activities of Gevirtz group - but i would appreciate any more suggestions/refernces from people in this group.

Coming beck to you Brenda, you clearly support the usage of physiological parameters to enhance the immersion experience - yet I would be happy if you could direct me to some more studies apart from the "clinical observation..." you published in 1999 )

Again, let me thank you for making this Associations and this internet forum.

Thanks for letting me know about the Clark & Beck book...I will definitely order that! If you look on my webpage I have my studies listed (also in MedLine & PsycINFO)...the particular one you should review is the 1st randomized controlled clinical trial I completed in 1999 and published in 2002. I then published the 3 year followup showing support for the addition of physio...we have our randomized controlled clinical trial on PTSD (1st controlled one with returning veterans) coming out in a few months, it is now under review. If you go to AAPB.org, they will give probably more references to support the efficacy. I hope more people will continue to do the studies. It has been clear in over 7000 over our clinical cases, and in our controlled studies, that the addition of physiological feedback to VR, done appropriately by trained clinicians, adds to the efficacy.
Thanks for joining the forum Arnon!
v/r,
Brenda
