Bulletproofing the Psyche
Bulletproofing the Psyche: Preventing Mental Health Problems in Our Military and Veterans is an important introduction to the concept of mental fitness training standards. Anthology editors Kate Hendricks Thomas and David Albright have pulled together an interdisciplinary team of researchers, practitioners, and military veterans to outline the case for resilient skills training.
Mental fitness training methods include somatic protocols long used in the treatment sector to rewire our brains after trauma. Innovative, somatic treatments are proven alternatives to drug and talk therapy and can have powerful impact on levels of resilience. Calling for action, the authors advocate for moving these evidence-based practices into the prevention and training sectors.
Contributors include leaders in the field of trauma research, military social work, and veterans’ health practice.
