“The new edition of Military Psychologyis a one-stop-shop for understanding the role and tasks facing military psychologists in the US….This third edition has been updated in several ways, but perhaps most compellingly with the addition of more than 50 short case studies….The volume is also strengthened by the inclusion of a wealth of practical reference material….This third edition offers a valuable resource for anyone interested in the field and application of military psychology.”

The Military Psychologist

“Any mental health practitioner who deals with our men and women in uniform should get to know this volume well....Blend[s] just the right amount of academic scholarship, practical utility, and user-friendly readability.”

International Journal of Emergency Mental Health (on the first edition)

“It is rare to encounter a book with so little to critique....Provides state-of-the-art and practical perspectives for the psychologist serving on the front lines of occupational behavioral health.”

PsycCRITIQUES (on the first edition)

“This work is invaluable in the hands of almost any graduate student, and is an absolute must-have for any social services or medical practitioner.”

Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic (on the first edition)

“In the third edition of Military Psychology, Kennedy and Zillmer describe the growing array of services provided by military psychologists to the nation’s fighting forces during peacetime and war. This is an extraordinary resource for early-career military psychologists, psychologists contemplating a military career, and forensic psychologists conducting evaluations of national security personnel and military veterans. The expansive case illustrations provide rich detail and context. The book is a model of clarity, organization, and transparency. Kennedy and Zillmer, along with their impressive list of contributors, demystify the role of military psychologists and reveal the procedures, standards, methods, regulations, and commitment to ethical practices that underlie their work.”

—David M. Corey, PhD, ABPP, private practice, Lake Oswego, Oregon

“The third edition of this now-classic work provides a comprehensive, scholarly, and very informative look at topics including fitness for duty, evidence-based behavioral health, sexual assault, suicide, personnel selection, and other important domains affecting the military and those who serve. With contributors selected for their topic expertise, this volume is sure to be one of the most useful sources for informing evidence-based psychology applications in military contexts, and understanding how they have evolved. Highly recommended.”

—Kirk Heilbrun, PhD, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Drexel University

“As a 27-year Army veteran, now working with community mental health initiatives, I find myself turning to this reference more and more often. The third edition offers important updates on a broad range of topics, presenting a helpful perspective on both the journey so far and opportunities for the future. Issues of mental health in the military, especially conditions arising from service, require attention across patients, providers, and organizations. Many thanks to Kennedy and Zillmer for their continued service to this field.”

—Lt. Col. Maura A. "Mo" Gillen, U.S. Army (retired), Instructor, Family-to-Family peer education program, National Alliance on Mental Illness

“This book thoroughly covers the vital area of service member mental health and describes many significant resources available to those serving today and in the future. I was particularly struck by the focus on resiliency. We have long valued this quality in the design and construction of ships and submarines, but the human aspects of resilience in the military were overlooked for too long. This is a crucial guide not only for mental health professionals, but also for leaders from across the various military career tracks.”

—Capt. Larry D. Burrill, U.S. Navy (retired)
