Many people--including some mental health professionals and service members themselves--have the misconception that military deployment is highly likely to cause posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This book gives practitioners a more nuanced understanding of military stress reactions and related mental health concerns, from transient adjustment problems to clinical disorders. Drawing on expert knowledge of military environments and culture, Carrie H. Kennedy provides vital guidance for evidence-based assessment, intervention, and prevention. Kennedy emphasizes that overdependence on the diagnosis of PTSD can lead to suboptimal care, and shows how to tailor treatment to each service member's or veteran's needs. A crucial addition to any practitioner's library, the book is illustrated with numerous case vignettes.

"This may be the most comprehensive review of military stress reactions ever published. Kennedy carefully integrates the vast scientific literature with military history, culture, and operations. Few people have the boots-on-the-ground clinical, operational, and deployment-related background and experience to produce such an impressive work. The 26 captivating case presentations will hold the reader's interest from cover to cover. Kennedy's description of the continuum of military stress reactions and their interplay with concussion is invaluable. I highly recommend this book for clinicians, researchers, and graduate students involved in consultation, assessment, and treatment of military service members and veterans."--Alan L. Peterson, PhD, ABPP, Krus Endowed Chair in Psychiatry; Director, STRONG STAR Consortium; and Director, Consortium to Alleviate PTSD, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
