Promoting Psychological Resilience in the U.S. Military

By Lisa S. Meredith; Cathy D. Sherbourne et al. | Go to book overview

CHAPTER FOUR
Conclusions and Recommendations
This monograph sought to identify the factors that promote resilience by reviewing evidence available in the literature. Although the factors were not empirically derived, they were gathered using a rigorous qualitative approach. They were then used to examine a subset of programs designed to promote resilience in military populations, in order to better understand which evidence-informed factors are utilized by those programs. This chapter summarizes the study’s main findings and reviews recommended actions that can be taken by those currently implementing resilience programs, those planning to develop new programs, and policymakers seeking to improve services and maintain readiness by enhancing well-being among military members and their families.
Conclusions
Our review of the resilience literature and review of selected programs designed to promote resilience led to several conclusions. We organize these conclusions in four parts:
1. factors that promote resilience
2. assessments of program effectiveness
3. barriers to program implementation
4. implications for further work on resilience.

Factors That Promote Resilience
The literature review identified a set of factors that are supported by evidence in the literature and by a group of academic experts in the resilience field (some of whom have military experience). The factors are presented based on the level at which they operate: individual, family, unit, or community (see p. xiv for detailed descriptions of factors).
Individual-level factors
– Positive coping
– Positive affect
– Positive thinking
