This book is a primer for understanding the complex military environment and the unique stressors that the soldiers and their family undergo. It also helps us understand the coping resources available to the soldier to reduce unwanted stress and the inbuilt resilience that he displays as a result of rigorous military training. As deployment of military is on the increase and non-military tasks also entrusted to the Armed Forces, critical resources are frittered away at the cost of training, the most important being the resource of time which truncates the training cycle, causing and spiralling into unwanted stress. The military is now often asked to do more with less and the demand-resource pendulum swings heavily in the wake of unrealistic demands placed on the military by those who have no understanding of its functioning. As such, stress levels are bound to increase, impairing performance and adversely impacting morale of the forces. The book is an assortment of chapters from experienced military psychologists who bolster our understanding of stress and its dimensions, coping resources and resilience in the military and other enhancers of military performance. It identifies evolutionary views on combat stress, reviews the typical stressors experienced by soldiers, including those experienced on the battlefield, and provides an overview of selected research into the psychosocial and health costs of serving in combat and operational conditions. Other interesting themes in the book discuss Army Resilience Training to improve quality of leadership and increase overall performance on one hand, and, on the other hand, to reduce the dropout rate of officer cadets from training institutions due to psychological reasons and also examine how we can better take care of those who serve by building resilience across different domains. printed Pages: 196.
