Interventions are needed to help the functional impairment of veterans, especially with regard to symptoms of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. This pilot study examines how EEG biofeedback impacts PTSD symptoms in veterans of mixed age and race at The Bell Shelter in Los Angeles. As the method of data collection, this quantitative study employed a Likert scale questionnaire tracking 23 symptoms of PTSD for both the experimental and control groups at the same weekly intervals. This study examined whether there was a difference between the PTSD symptoms in the five veterans receiving treatment as compared to the five veterans who did not receive treatment during the study, but had the option of receiving treatment after the study was completed. Results of the data indicate a significant remediation of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder symptoms in the experimental group after undergoing 20 sessions of EEG biofeedback, in contrast to the control group.
