The overarching aim of this proposal is to develop, deliver, and investigate the efficacy of MBAT-Team MBAT-T as a tool to promote individual cognitive performance, resilience, interpersonal interactions, and team-level operational performance. The MBAT-T program will be tested and compared to the standard MBAT for individuals MBAT-I and a no-training control group. We hypothesize that MBAT-T will benefit squads across all 3 key domains cognitive performance and resilience, interpersonal interactions, and team-level operational performance. We have received approval from the University of Miami IRB and HRPO Army, have secured a site for the project, and are on track regarding the coordination with the testing sites, research consultants and delivery of the practicum to the trainers who will be delivering the MBAT program. The creation of the MBAT-Team course materials and trainer materials are near completion, and significant progress has been made on the preparation and development of the neurobehavioral testing battery for the project. In summary, our timely success reaching our project milestones over this past year leave us well positioned for continued success in the execution of this project in the coming years.
