Abstract : This technical report is the second in a series of reports evaluating the impact of the Army's Comprehensive Soldier Fitness (CSF) Program by examining relationships between reported resilience and psychological health (R/PH) and various health and behavioral outcomes (both positive and negative) among Soldiers. In this report, we first focused on the relationship between R/PH and positive objective outcomes related to high job performance (promotions and selections), and later turned our attention to the relationship between R/PH and high academic achievement (working in careers that require advanced terminal degrees, such as medical doctors and lawyers). While the results strongly suggest that there is a relationship between R/PH and the objective measures of high job performance, results do not support a relationship between R/PH and high academic achievement. Future evaluation will be required as data becomes available in order to derive causality.
