Abstract:

The investigators of the Department of Military Psychiatry explored the well-being and distress of soldiers in a variety of military groups, some of which are considered high risk populations. Soldiers of several of these groups seem to possess somewhat different work, family, and individual assets and stressors. These groups included drill sergeants, soldiers deployed to the Sinai as part of the multinational peacekeeping force, Special Forces soldiers, and members of a Department of Army Pentagon staff. The general psychological well-being of these soldiers was assessed by the General Well-Being Schedule Dupuy, 1978. The scores on the General Well-Being Schedule of all but two of the groups are in the moderately distressed range. The scores of the Special Forces soldier and members of the DA staff are in the marginally positive range of well-being. There are significant group differences on the overall and subscales of the General Well-Being Schedule. Author
