BlueSun founders are nationally renowned scholars in the field of traumatic stress. Each BlueSun program has a solid foundation in social cognitive theory and cognitive behavioral therapy. The programs employ the same techniques used by trained trauma counselors, making them great resources for use on their own or alongside in-person therapy.
All BlueSun programs are backed by rigorous clinical trials and user assessments. Early peer-reviewed research indicates improved psychological functioning after use of BlueSun programs, with a noted improvement in stress-related symptoms.
