MAY 2022 Nurses’ Week D2: Military Identity Project: Military Identity Core Cognitive Content and Implications for Psychological Well-Being
Psychological health disorders continue to account for a significant burden of medical care (highest inpatient bed days, missed duty days, appointment utilization) for active duty service members. Cognitive therapies are the evidence-based choice for psychological health conditions and propose to alter cognitive contents (memories/thoughts/beliefs) and processes. Little is known about the cognitive contents comprising military identity. The Military Identity Project studied the cognitive contents of active duty members to understand how members view themselves. We also studied the relationship between strength of military identity as it relates to levels of psychological well-being. Findings identify military-specific cognitive vulnerabilities and resources that may inform the development of novel military-centric clinical cognitive strategies.
This activity provides continuing education for physicians, nurses, physician assistance, social workers, psychologists, and certified counselors. A certificate of attendance is available for other attendees.
- Summarize the self-schema’s role in identity and potential impact of negative self-schema content on psychological well-being.
- Describe at least three broad categories of Military Identity cognitive content.
- Discuss two examples of Military Identity cognitive content resources or psychological well-being strengths.
- Identify two examples of Military Identity cognitive content vulnerabilities or psychological areas to target for building resilience.
