Comprehensive Soldier Fitness: A Vision for Psychological Resilience in the U.S. Army
Casey, George W., Jr.
American Psychologist, v66 n1 p1-3 Jan 2011
The stress and strain on the U.S. Army's community due to nearly a decade of protracted war is well documented in the press and in scientific literature. In response, the Army's Comprehensive Soldier Fitness (CSF) program is a preventive program that seeks to enhance psychological resilience among all members of the Army community, which includes soldiers, family members, and Department of the Army civilians. CSF is not a medical treatment program. Rather, CSF helps those community members who are psychologically healthy face life's adversities--including combat and prolonged separation from loved ones--by providing evidence-based training.
