dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to describe the effectiveness of pre-deployment resilience training with service members in order to help reduce Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Resilience training is an intervention that helps increase social supports, help-seeking skills, coping skills, and stress training (Sharma & Sharma, 2012). Thousands of members in the United States Armed Forces are being deployed to combat zones every year, which is related to increased rates of PTSD (Hoge, Castro, Messer, McGurk, Cotting, & Koffman, 2004). These high levels of PTSD offer many cultural, policy, and ethical considerations. Addressing this issue is important for social workers due to the fact that social workers help with pre-deployment training and have the abilities to help create change.
