Promoting Psychological Resilience in the U.S. Military

CHAPTER THREE
Review of Programs for Promoting Resilience
This chapter describes the approach we used to identify, select, and review resilience programs. We also report the findings from our assessment of a subgroup of resilience programs presented below and organized around four topics:
1. program characteristics
2. strategies for promoting resilience
3. barriers to program implementation
4. evaluation of program effectiveness, including outcome measures used.

Approach

The final phase of the project involved reviewing a set of resilience programs via interviews with program representatives. The purpose of the interviews was to find out to what extent the evidence-informed resilience factors identified in the literature map onto program content. In particular, we wanted to learn which of the resilience factors are incorporated as part of the program emphasis. We also wanted to learn about how the programs are organized to deliver services, the kinds of barriers they might have faced in implementing the program, and lessons they have learned in addressing those barriers. Finally, we also asked them about how they evaluate their program to determine whether it is successful in promoting resilience. A discussion guide was developed for these semi-structured interviews.


Content of Discussion Guide

The discussion guide was designed to elicit information about program characteristics, program organization, strategies for promoting resilience, barriers to program implementation, and effectiveness evaluation from program representatives. A major objective of these interviews was to identify which of the factors identified through the literature review are central to each program. Thus, we included a list of each of the final factors with a column to check and a space to provide specific examples or comments pertaining to those that are used. Table 3.1 summarizes the interview topic categories
