Endorsements

A straightforward guide to the assessment and treatment of modern service members...It would surely be useful not only to practitioners of psychology in today's armed forces, but also to clinicians and leaders in a variety of circumstances whose work brings them into contact with service members. The book covers clinical and operational psychology in rich detail.
-The Military Psychologist

Any mental health practitioner who deals with our men and women in uniform should get to know this volume well....Blend[s] just the right amount of academic scholarship, practical utility, and user-friendly readability.
-International Journal of Emergency Mental Health

It is rare to encounter a book with so little to critique....Provides state-of-the-art and practical perspectives for the psychologist serving on the front lines of occupational behavioral health.
-PsycCRITIQUES

Each chapter is authored independently. This makes the book an ideal class supplement because the instructor can use each unique topic according to the needs of the class....This work is invaluable in the hands of almost any graduate student, and is an absolute must-have for any social services or medical practitioner.
-Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic

This second edition is timely and highly relevant. Psychology plays a central role in promoting health and wellness in the military and veteran communities. This book serves as a basic and essential text for both psychologists in training and those on the job. I was particularly pleased to see the new chapter discussing ethical dilemmas that military psychologists face, given the controversies over interrogations of detainees.
-Donald N. Bersoff, PhD, JD,
Director, Law and Psychology Program, Drexel University

As a provider and researcher of neuropsychological services for military personnel and their families, I find this book a 'must have.' It is comprehensive, practical, and scholarly. Anyone involved in assessing or treating military personnel will appreciate the book's balance of general information and detailed discussions of psychological aspects of military life.
-Antonio E. Puente, PhD,
Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina Wilmington

Kennedy, Zillmer, and their contributing authors share great insight into the most pressing issues facing today's military personnel. This is a much-needed reference for clinicians preparing our soldiers for the battlefield and providing psychological treatment as they arrive home. Posttraumatic stress and traumatic brain injury constitute the signature wounds of war. This book takes a huge step toward addressing the need for better diagnosis and treatment.
-Patrick J. Kennedy,
former member of Congress

Psychologists play an increasingly important role in today's ever-changing battlefield. In particular, successful treatment of combat stress and traumatic brain injury has become very important for maintaining the combat power of our force. This excellent reference describes the help that psychologists can offer our troops in every branch of service.
-Major General Wesley E. Craig,
The Adjutant General, Pennsylvania National Guard
