Summary

The current study aims to adapt and test a brief computer-assisted intervention for pregnant women with elevated posttraumatic stress symptoms. Twenty pregnant women in their first trimester will be invited to participate in the study if they endorse elevated posttraumatic stress symptoms. Along with self-report measures, hormones will be measured at baseline, one month post-intervention, three months post-intervention, and post-delivery. In addition, women will receive a psychoeducation + skills intervention during their first trimester and women will be offered a "booster session" intervention following delivery to enhance utilization of skills during a critical period for maternal mental and physical health outcomes.
