The Danish Veterans Centre offers a body-orientated therapy, Basic Body Awareness Therapy (BBAT), in addition to the psychological trauma-focused therapy to military veterans suffering from symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This study explored how the veterans a) experienced BBAT as a physiotherapeutic approach and as an add-on treatment to their usual Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and b) whether it makes sense for the individual veteran to incorporate BBAT into their treatment.
