Abstract: The purpose of this study is to also establish effectiveness and negative impacts of current Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) trainings pre and postdeployment, and identify recommendations of future education and interventions for soldiers of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). This research aims to find ways to strengthen the soldier, family, and military readiness.
It is hypothesized that soldiers' insight of what is effective tactics used to educate those with symptoms will increase the reported likelihood that they will be more open and seek treatment options in the future. Furthermore, by surveying soldiers using mixed-method self-reported survey will solicit information of how PTSD educational programs have a reported negative impact on soldiers' perception and willingness to seek mental health treatment. The researcher also hypothesizes that role of culture and family involvement will increase the successfulness of educational programs according to the participating soldiers.
