Trans-Atlantic groundbreaking research programme to commence in April 2011.
A new partnership with Michigan State University, The Gerda Boyesen Institute and SAFE Ireland has been given the approval to commence a potentially groundbreaking research study into healing domestic violence trauma. The clinical trial will test the efficacy of biodynamic psychotherapy in healing trauma linked to domestic violence.
This pilot phase of the study commences in April 2011 and SAFE Ireland with its research partners will analyse the preliminary data over the coming months. Based on these findings and resources the partners hope to conduct a more in depth study towards the end of 2011. The research team is led by Dr Denise Saint Arnault, Associate Professor (College of Nursing) in Michigan State University.
