This expert compendium surveys the current state of military psychology across the branches of service at the clinical, research, consulting, and organizational levels. Its practical focus examines psychological adjustment pre- and post-deployment, commonly-encountered conditions (e.g., substance abuse), and the promotion of well-being, sleep, mindfulness, and resilience training. Coverage pays particular attention to uses of psychology in selection and assessment of service personnel in specialized positions, and training concerns for clinicians and students choosing to work with the military community. Chapters also address topics of particular salience to a socially conscious military, including PTSD, sexual harassment and assault, women''s and LGBT issues, suicide prevention, and professional ethics.

 Among the specific chapters topics covered:

 -         Military deployment psychology: psychologists in the forward environment.

-         Stress and resilience in married military couples.

-         Assessment and selection of high-risk operational personnel: processes,

procedures, and underlying theoretical constructs.

-         Understanding and addressing sexual harassment and sexual assault in the US   


-         Virtual reality applications for the assessment and treatment of PTSD.
