Editorial Reviews

International Journal of Emergency Mental Health
"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
The Military Psychologist
"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
PsycCRITIQUES
"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
Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
"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
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN(Madigan Healthcare System)
Description: Practicing clinical psychology in a military setting requires unique skills and an appreciation of a multitude of special situations and regulations that to the newcomer can seem daunting and formidable. This book is intended to impart guidance for clinicians in understanding the unique complexities of the military system, as well as the unique needs of its service members from a psychological perspective.
Purpose: This is intended to update the original book published in 2006 and expand upon the information in the previous edition.
Audience: According to the editors, this book is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other counselors working with military personnel. The editors and contributing authors have experience with the issues and population the book addresses.
Features: While much of the material in the book is applicable directly to active duty psychologists, there is also plenty that is applicable to civilians working for the Department of Defense. The quality of the chapters is variable, however. Some only focus on aspects of one branch (e.g., Navy regulations) and then send readers in search of regulations from other branches, while others are much more complete in their coverage of the salient facets and include useful appendixes, such as chapter 2 with a sample medical evaluation board (MEB) narrative report. It is disappointing in a second edition to see that some chapters remain outdated. For example, the suicide chapter has data only to 2009 and omits some of the more recent data on empirically-driven interventions in favor of vague statements that convey a message of following the canons of governing bodies. The nonspecific discussion is evident throughout the book, culminating in the chapter on ethics. This chapter includes some wonderfully progressive and insightful discussions, such as on the challenges associated with telehealth, but it offers no specific suggestions or guidance.
Assessment: Military and civilian psychologists working in the Department of Defense may find this a useful overview of the nuances of practice in this unique setting, but the detailed information necessary to be functionally effective on a daily basis is lacking and will leave readers searching for materials on their own. The second edition is not essential to own.
From the Publisher
"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; cofounder, One Mind for Research

"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
