dehp® therapeutic sponsors Rally Point Arizona Candlelight Walk to Honor the Arizona Military and Initiates Ongoing Pilot Study on PTSD Among Veterans

Rally Point Candlelight Walk: November 2, at Tempe Beach Park, 4:30 – 7:00 p.m.

Scottsdale, AZ {October 20, 2014} … The Rally Point Arizona Candlelight Walk to Honor the Arizona Military Veteran Community will be held Sunday, November 2, at Tempe Beach Park, from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Emceed by KFYI’s Mike Broomhead, this event will raise awareness and funds for the Rally Point Arizona Military Navigator Program.

Rally Point Arizona provides a continuum of care, most of which is provided by veterans or military family members who understand the unique challenges of this population; including a 24/7 crisis support line, specialized mobile crisis response teams and treatment for service members suffering from PTSD. The Military Navigator program provides outreach to any military service member, veteran or family member who needs help navigating the system, getting linked to services and being supported through challenging times. With very limited funds, more than 500 people sought assistance last year and 100% were connected with appropriate services.

22 FOR THE 22…
Currently, there are 22 veteran suicides per day or one every 65 minutes. Alarmingly, 30% of all veterans have considered suicide. To raise awareness of this crisis, the 22 FOR THE 22 hike will begin at 5:00 a.m., the morning of November 2, with 22 veterans and family members hiking 22 miles, with the final leg of the hike being completed during the Candlelight Vigil and Memorial Walk.

Rally Point vigil candles will be available at the event for the suggested minimum donation of $10. There will be activities for children, including face painting and everyone will have the opportunity to write a letter to a soldier.

dehp® therapeutic Sponsors PTSD Pilot Study…

“We are honored to be a sponsor of this event and for the opportunity to offer hope and help for those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), as it is treatable,” says Josette Sullins, founder and CEO of dehp® therapeutic. “This innovative dehp® therapeutic tool is a licensed therapy that resolves hidden memories activating PTSD symptoms and consequently transforms lives.”

An acronym for developed expression of human potential (pronounced: deep), dehp® is a transformative process focused on stimulating the innate intelligence of the human body. Designed to help individuals process buried emotions from traumatic experiences, the dehp® technique has proven anecdotally to be a highly effective tool in treating individuals suffering from PTSD.

Sullins is driven to amp the research up from anecdotal to clinical, and thanks to the generous financial support from a donor who prefers to remain anonymous, her dream will become a reality in November as she launches an ongoing and unprecedented pilot study on PSTD among Veterans.

Sullins and her team are currently seeking both partners and participants to be a part of this four-phase, fully-funded dehp® therapeutic pilot study, which will document the benefits and efficacy of the dehp® technique on individuals with PTSD.

Participants will receive dehp® therapeutic sessions at no cost (normal fee is $600), followed by 24 hours of treatment by a licensed therapist participating in the study. To be eligible, participants must be current or retired military personnel with a diagnosis of PTSD and be available November 7-9 and for 6 additional treatments scheduled in the following two weeks. They must also be willing to complete a one-page questionnaire at the end of each session to track their progress.

-Qualifications for Funded Participating Sponsors: Non-profit organizations employing therapists working with PTSD patients, preferably military veterans, but not exclusively. The study will use the Clinician Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS) to measure each subject’s response to the licensed dehp® therapeutic technique. The CAPS method of assessment is the highest standard of measurement used by mental health professionals to evaluate individuals with PTSD. The data from this pilot study will be published and used as evidence to fund additional grants. All participating partners are eligible to use the licensed dehp® technique in their facility as well as the results from this study; will be able to select therapists for the research pilot; and can elect to offer the study to their clients who wish to participate as subjects.
