Research Paper Title
Stress in British Army Personnel.
There is considerable research to date in the field of stress, particularly with respect to questionnaire research.
There is, however, a lack of recent research on stress in the British Army which addresses either traumatic or organisational stress.
This study considers soldiers’ experiences of both occupational and traumatic stress, in addition to identifying the contribution of an individual’s expectations and evaluations of a deployment, on mental well-being.
Furthermore, this research methodology incorporates standardised psychological questionnaires, free response items and interviews with personnel, which serve to provide a comprehensive approach with high face validity.
