Online Campus Graduate’s PTSD Research Featured in Cronkite News

In the Media | 02.12.20

Tracey Burraston, M.A. ’18, a graduate of the online Master of Arts in Psychology: Specialization in Military Psychology program, recently published a study that was featured in Cronkite News, a division of Arizona PBS. Burraston’s three-year study pointed to physical exercise and sports as an effective treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms.

“It’s a rollercoaster and it’s 24/7,” Burraston said about PTSD. “You can’t turn it off and it’s exhausting. To be in that constant state of agitation and defense is exhausting.” The study followed 32 veterans, who saw improvement in their mental stability, sleep quality, and other positive benefits after participating in intense sports and other outdoor activities.

Read more about Burraston’s study in the Cronkite News article “Veterans with PTSD Turn to Sports, Physical Activity as Alternative Method of Treatment.
