"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
