This intermediate workshop focuses on key aspects of working with the military community: military culture, deployment cycle stresses, evidence-based clinical practices, fitness and resilience practices, and resources. Leading military psychologists and senior DoD psychologists, with over 100 years of combined military psychology experience, familiarize public service and civilian practitioners with the military culture, stresses, deployment, and treatment context for service members and their families exposed to war (most recently, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom).
Learning Objectives
1. Explain the military rank structure and organization and distinguish the primary mission
and core values of each branch of service.
2. Recognize types of trauma exposure, emotional reactions for OIF/OEF veterans in the deployment cycle with relevant military terminology.
3. Identify empirically validated assessment tools and evidence-based treatments for PTSD
and describe the prevalence of trauma and PTSD, as well as factors that contribute to the development of PTSD.
4. Recognize fitness, resilience, and well-being models and approaches for the military.
5. Identify available resources for the service member and family.
6. Identify general and deployment-related stressors on the military leaders and military couples.
7. Recognize the stresses of military deployment and the life cycle on the service member and family.
