In San Diego, California, a new treatment of therapy involves videoconferencing to treat Iraq and Afghanistan War Veterans suffering with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Journalist Tony Perry of the LA Times calls this “Skype Therapy.”

Army Veteran Moreno Garcia says: “Being in your own living room for sessions, that’s comfortable.” This makes sense, given that many veterans no longer have to go to face-to-face sessions and leave what is familiar and safe.
