The Anxiety & Behavioral Health Clinic (ABHC), in conjunction with the Florida State University (FSU) Psychology Department, are seeking paid volunteers for a new research study geared toward combat veterans. Dr. Brad Schmidt, ABHC Director and FSU faculty member, was awarded a grant through the Department of Defense with colleague Dr. Wen Li to develop a protocol for reducing combat-related re-experiencing symptoms. We have successfully developed this protocol over the past 6 months with the help of veterans from our local community. We are now looking for additional volunteers to participate in the final phase, which will seek to evaluate how feasible, acceptable, and effective this protocol is for combat veterans in a community setting. For more information, please contact the ABHC at 850-645-1766.


Researchers at FSU are studying a brief, computerized treatment for regular weed users who struggle with tolerating stress and other negative emotions. Eligible participants will be paid $110 for full participation in the study. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two brief, computerized treatments aimed at enhancing the ability to tolerate and manage stress and other negative emotions. Participants will complete questionnaires and computerized tasks. Must be between 18 and 30 years old and a regular weed user (i.e., average use of twice per week or more for at least one year). Assessment and treatment sessions will be completed at Florida State University over a 3 week time period, and some questionnaires and interviews can be completed online/by phone.
