Deployment Psychology

Deployment Psychology: Evidence Based Strategies To Promote Mental Health In The Military


The impact of combat on service members' mental health has received considerable attention both in the popular press and in scholarly publications. Yet few books have focused on evidence-based efforts to prevent mental health problems and enhance service members' well-being and resilience.In this book, leading clinicians and researchers do just that by examining how military organizations can best moderate the negative impact of combat through individual screening, training, peer support, leadership, and organizational policies. The editors promote a broad occupational health model of prevention and include the latest research on delivering mental health services in predeployment, in-theater settings, and VA hospitals. The psychological health not only of service members but also of military families is approached as an integral aspect of deployment psychology. The result is a groundbreaking book that emphasizes what is known and not known about evidence-based interventions. It represents the first comprehensive review of mental health interventions across the deployment cycle and will help guide the field of military psychology in developing a much-needed support system for service members.Amy B.
