9780199928262: Military Psychologists' Desk Reference

The psychological well-being of servicemen and women returning from war is one of the most discussed and contemplated mental health issues today. Media programs debate the epidemic of PTSD in returning veterans and the potential fallout of a less-than-adequate veteran mental health system. This public discussion is only a small glimpse into the field of military psychology. One of the most diverse specialties within psychology, it is a sector positioned and equipped to influence such concepts as psychological resilience, consequences of extended family stress, the role of technology in mental healthcare delivery, and how to increase human performance under harsh conditions.

Military Psychologists' Desk Reference is the authoritative guide in the field of military mental health, covering in a clear and concise manner the depth and breadth of this expanding area at a pivotal and relevant time. Moore and Barnett, former military psychologists, bring together the field's top experts to provide concise and targeted reviews of the most salient aspects of military mental health and present the material in an easily digestible manner. Chapters cover important topics such as military culture, working with Special Operations Forces, professional issues and ethical challenges, women in combat, posttraumatic stress, anxiety and sleep disorders, psychologists' involvement in interrogations, and how to build and sustain a resilient Force, to name but a few. Authors consist of a combination of current and former military psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and Chaplains, experts from the Department of Veterans Affairs, prominent academicians, and representatives from other governmental and civilian organizations. This comprehensive resource is a must for every military psychologist, as well as for non-military clinicians, researchers, counselors, social workers, educators, and trainees who increasingly need to be familiar with this specialized area of psychology.

Review:


"Given the ambitious careers of editors Bret Moore and Jeffrey Barnett, as army
psychologists as well as board certified clinicians, researchers, and academicians in their
civilian lives, it is not surprising that their book, the first desk reference covering military
psychology, is a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the contributions of psychology to
military missions and culture. Overall, the book provides convincing evidence that military psychologists and the fundamental principles of psychology will continue to be important factors in the changing landscape of the U.S. military-industrial complex." -Carol Naumann McKarrin, PsycCRITIQUES


"Military Psychologists' Desk Reference is a timely compendium that expands our understanding and appreciation of the complexity of military psychology's past, present, and future. Important themes resonate throughout this volume related to the central role psychologists play in assessing, treating, and consulting to military personnel; the myriad ethical and professional dilemmas associated with working in military settings and ways to effectively manage such challenges; and the proliferation of theory, research, and state-of-the art practice that increasingly can guide psychologists' efforts in a military context. With chapters written by relevant leaders, this volume adds a needed balance to the literature and is destined to become a classic." -- Nadine J. Kaslow, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Vice Chair, Emory University School of Medicine, and President (2014), American Psychological Association


"An extraordinarily rigorous and comprehensive book that addresses every aspect of current and expanding duties of military psychologists. It describes where military psychology was, is, and will be. This is a must-read!" -- Robert J. Resnick, PhD, ABPP, Randolph-Macon College; Former President, American Psychological Association; and Recipient, Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, Department of Army


"This amazingly comprehensive volume will help both military psychologists and their civilian colleagues get a jump start on any issue likely to come their way in the line of duty. It will quickly become the first 'go to' reference for those serving our troops and their families." -- Gerald P. Koocher, PhD, ABPP, Dean, College of Science and Health, DePaul University, Chicago, IL


"The past decade has witnessed a dramatic increase in the employment of military psychologists in support of missions across the full military operational spectrum. As a result, military psychologists can now be found not only in the clinic but in the field as part of mental health assessment teams and care providers. Until now, no single text has documented the wide array of roles psychologists perform as military psychologists in the service to the Nation. This book provides authoritative information on the various roles and responsibilities of military psychologists serving military personnel and their families. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in working as a military psychologist in today's military organization." -- Armando X. Estrada, PhD, Editor-in-Chief (2008-2013), Military Psychology, and President (2011), Society for Military Psychology


"As core faculty and the coordinator of the Military Clinical Psychology Track in the Adler School of Professional Psychology's Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology program, Drs. Moore and Barnett have crafted a military psychologists' desk reference that significantly enhances my military clinical psychology track curriculum and meets my goal of ensuring that budding student psychologists and those post-doctoral will have an indispensable desk reference at the ready to assist them in their practice. Feedback that I've received from my students thus far include, and I paraphrase: it's accessible and comprehensive; the chapters are concise and filled with essential information only making it a more desirable read; and the cost is absolutely reasonable. Bravo to Moore and Barnett for creating such a comprehensive, meaningful, and useful text for both the classroom and clinical practice. It's certainly one of my favorites!" -Grady L. Garner, Jr., Ph.D., Adler School of Prof. Psychology
