About the Veterans Administration STAIR (Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation)

Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR) is a systematic approach to teaching people living with PTSD how to manage their symptoms and regulate their emotions in such a way as to successfully reintegrate into society after a traumatic event. It was originally developed as handbook for a therapist to use in person with a small group of patients that meet once a week for twelve weeks. This project was essentially a re-design to optimize the STAIR approach for an individualized, self-paced, online experience. Through careful attention to tone in the instructional writing, as well as through creating a great deal of space for non-judged personal reflection, the online version of STAIR addresses the needed performance objectives in such a way as to meet the unique needs of this audience.
