PE Coach is an app intended for use by therapists and clients engaging in Progressive Exposure (PE) therapy for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PE therapy is a specific form of psychotherapy, provided by a professional, aimed at helping survivors of trauma process their experiences, which can alleviate symptoms of PTSD. PE Coach is designed to be a convenient add-on to this therapy: it contains tools for recording sessions, completing homework, and practicing skills learned in the treatment room. This allows users – with their providers – to stay on top of their treatment to help ensure that they obtain the greatest possible benefit.
