Abstract

In this paper, a computational model is presented to simulate traumas, including their development, recovery, and the effect of group support. The model is built upon mechanisms known from cognitive and social neuroscience. Using the model, several scenarios were explored, considering both individual and multiple persons. The simulation results of the model were compared to a data-set on symptoms and recovery of traumatized patients. The obtained model enables simulation and analysis of group therapy and its effects on traumatized patients.
