would like to request your participation with a survey for Native
American veterans who may have experienced combat-related stress
or know others who have. Our intent with this survey is to increase
the body of knowledge about Native American veterans and their attitudes
and perceptions towards PTSD and its treatment. This information
will contribute to increasing the body of knowledge about Native
American Veterans. Your answers on the survey will be helpful to
us in achieving this goal. The Washington State University Institutional
Review Board has certified the study as meeting exempt status. All
participants and their responses will be kept confidential.
The research team includes graduate students in counseling psychology
at Washington State University, several of whom are Native American
veterans and individuals experienced in working with veterans and
Native American veterans. This study is being supervised by Dr.
Phyllis Erdman, Professor in counseling psychology at Washington
State University. We are interested in this area because of our
personal experience with military service and a commitment to helping
those who may suffer from the effects of combat.
We appreciate your time and thank you in advance for your help.
