Abstract:

The long-range goal for this project is to improve the quality of life for military personnel. The objective of this proposal which supports the long-range goal of this project is to examine the effectiveness of a simple, non-spiritual, self-management strategy that strengthens personal and occupational resources-resources that can positively impact adverse reactions to military-specific demands and promote personal and work outcomes. Our intervention, designed to strengthen a balanced self-identity through very brief affirmations of growth and balance values, will be adapted to military occupational contexts. Within the context of Adler and Castros 2013 Occupational Health Model for Military Mental Health, our central hypothesis is that a balanced self-identity will strengthen personal and occupational resources that moderate the relationship between demands and personal and work outcomes. In the first year we have developed the content for the app, and are preparing to conduct beta testing and piloting.
