Abstract : The Military Leaders' Guide to Psychological Support Across the Deployment Cycle is the final deliverable of NATO HFM-081/RTG on Stress and Psychological Support in Military Operations. It was specifically designed to support military leaders responsible for leading military personnel on NATO's military operations. The Military Leaders' Guide provides both a rationale for addressing psychological support issues and strategies for leaders tasked with supporting their unit members. Given this balance, it is useful to include this guide: - during military academy training as part of a pre-commander course; - as part of an enlisted leadership training course; - as part of junior staff college training. The guide can also be used: - at the pre-deployment stage to support leaders who are about to assume the responsibility for deployed units; - for training military psychological support professionals,
