Offering a Canadian perspective on the emotional health of servicemen and women, Military Operations and the Mind brings together researchers and practitioners from across the country to consider the impact that ethical issues have on the well-being of those who serve. Stemming from an initiative to enhance the lives of serving members by providing them with the best education and training in military ethics before and after deployments, this volume will better inform politics and public policies and enhance the welfare of the soldiers, sailors, and airmen and women who serve in singular, often harsh, and sometimes dangerous conditions. By integrating into the analysis the critical issue of well-being, this emerging field demonstrates a more holistic approach and is distinct from other fields in military, historical, philosophical, and behavioural studies. The first study of its kind, Military Operations and the Mind presents a new and helpful way to focus on the life of soldiers not only in operations overseas, but also once they return home. Contributors include Peter Bradley (Royal Military College of Canada), Victor M. Catano (Saint Mary's University), Danielle Charbonneau (Royal Military College of Canada), Howard Coomb (Royal Military College of Canada), Karen D. Davis (Defence Research and Development Canada), Colonel Richard Dickson (Canadian Army Land Warfare Centre), Joe Doty (Duke University), Allan English (Queen's University), Peter Gizewski (Department of National Defence), Heather Hrychuk (Centre for Operational Research and Analysis), E Kevin Kjelloway (Saint Mary's University), Allister MacIntyre (Royal Military College of Canada), Deanna Messervey (Queen's University), Damian O'Keefe (Saint Mary's University), Brigadier General (Ret'ed) G. E. Sharpe, Shaun Tymchuk (retired Canadian infantry officer), SLt Ethan Whitehead (Royal Canadian Navy), and Daphne Xu (National Institute of Education, Singapore).
