Military Network Radio with Linda Kreter presents:
“Bulletproofing the Psyche: Preventing Mental Health Problems in Our Military and Veterans” –
Guest and author Kate Hendricks Thomas, PhD, a former USMC Captain shares the background, science, and practices to achieve optimal performance after stress injuries (trauma, transition, life events, parenting, and more). With co-author David L. Albright, PhD, Kate gives examples of how “Bulletproofing the Psyche” is a thoroughly researched and practical book especially for military, veterans, and first responders — or anyone facing life hurdles. Preventing mental health problems is about training.
The warrior culture is insular and can be isolating in an “us versus them” way, making it difficult to see options when surrounded by the same. Mental fitness and optimal performance is enhanced and fortified when science, social support, connections, communication, and emotional regulation (with only two minutes twice a day practice) is used. The information in this episode helps all in the military and veteran communities, including families and youth.
