Abstract:

The Army created the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program in 2009, now named Comprehensive Soldier Family and Fitness CSF2. Its mission is to build resilience in each soldier, both physically and psychologically, through resilience training. The Army decided to base CSF2 on positive psychology and use positive visualization as a subcomponent of the CSF2s resilience training. Positive visualization is focusing on positive mental images in order to help achieve a goal. It is a technique that is most known to be used in sports. However, it is also used in civilian companies and businesses of different professions. This research paper investigated and analyzed the utility of PV within the CSF2 program, for the U.S. Army. Specifically, the researcher conducted qualitative analysis of research and resources that involve PV.
