  • Greater awareness of OSC continuum (42% increase) Greater willingness to ask for help (31% increase) Positive feelings of command support (58% increase) (NOT SHOWN) additionally, there was a decrease in stigma for the following: “Fear that Shipmates will see as weak” (18% decrease) and “feeling that the military creates barriers” (15% decrease) We assess those service members trained at all 4 NMPS (Navy Mobilization Processing Site) facilities (San Diego, Norfolk, Point Hueneme, Gulf Port) and those reservists trained at all NOSC (Navy Operational Support Center) sites (36 to date). Also assess special Navy communities assessed include such sites as:EMDEC (Executive Medical Department Enlisted Course) EODTEU (Explosive Ordinance Disposal Training Evaluation Unit) SWMI (Surface Warfare Medical Institute)NEPMU5 (Navy Environmental Protection Medical Unit 5)
  • “Research facilitation” : Study development and execution, data management andanalysis, dissemination of findings; leads to advancement of militaryscience, evidence-based evaluation and practice and improved identification,treatment and prevention of stress injuries. Collaborate across disciplines (mental health, pain medicine, urology, neurology, etc), across research organizations, other services and academia to target a variety of populations: IDC students, infantry marines, recruits, patients, etc. STUDIES: Actively engaged in 12 IRB approved studies. Currently developing 11 studies with expected approval and execution in 2012 and early 2013. COHERENCE: Comparison ofstress regulation programs for IDC students that could be appliedenterprise-wide to aid in stress management and increase performance SRTS: Evaluation of the effectiveness of the Stress Resilience Training System(SRTS) program through a randomized controlled trial with select Navy and MarineCorps commands.PROGRAM EVALUATION: Numerous program evaluation and data analysis projects. 3/5: Comparison of variousscreening methods, measures and time points to improve the post-deploymentscreening processWHITE PAPERS: Brief papers covering relevant COSC topics such as sleep, EBTs, optimal stress, etc. MANUSCRIPTS/PROFESSIONAL PRESENTATIONS: Representation at Military Health Systems (MHS), American Psychological Association and American Psychiatric Association, as well as other professional conferences. Co-author several manuscripts published in peer-reviewed journals. RESEARCH QUARTERLY: Very well received quarterly publication synthesizing the most relevant and timely COSC literature, with over a 1000 readers.
  • Social networking – which is very important when trying to reach young adult sailors and marines. (in fact, we’re tweeting the conference now under the hashtag #COSC12) (MOVE TO NEXT SLIDEAnd of course our two NCCOSC publications, (NEXT SLIDE)
