Abstract Approximately 14% of military personnel and veterans who have deployed to the combat theater are at risk for combat-related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The treatment of combat-related PTSD in active duty service members and veterans is challenging. Combat trauma may involve multiple high levels of exposure to different types of traumatic events (e.g., human carnage after explosive blasts, life threat/injuries to self/others, etc.). Many service members and veterans are unable ...

The individual development plan (IDP) is a career planning tool that assists PhD trainees in self-assessing skills, exploring career paths, developing short- and long-term career goals, and creating action plans to achieve those goals. The National Institutes of Health and many academic institutions have created policies that mandate completion of the IDP by both graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Despite these policies, little information exists regarding how well the tool is used ...

Background: The Individual Development Plan (IDP) was introduced as a tool to aid in career planning for doctoral trainees. Despite the National Institutes of Health and academic institutions creating policies that mandate the use of IDPs, little information exists regarding the use and effectiveness of the career planning tool. Methods: We conducted a multi-institutional, online survey to measure IDP use and effectiveness. The survey was distributed to potential respondents via social media and...

There is a growing cry for help from graduate students and postdoctoral fellows (trainees) across the globe who struggle with significant mental health concerns. Although there has been increased discussion, there remains a dire need to resolve our understanding of the mental health issues in the trainee population. Recent research has been focused on within-institution cohorts, such as the 2014 UC Berkeley Graduate Student Happiness and Well-being Report which found that 43–46% of graduate stud...

Graduate training is undoubtedly a time of increased stress, which often lasts for many years. Beyond graduate training, finding and settling into a career may also prove to be a time of uncertainty and increased workload. It is impossible to avoid stress, but certain practices in predicting, managing, and navigating the effects of stress can prove helpful in avoiding long-term, negative effects and can aid in maintaining a balanced and rewarding life. Clinical health psychologist Lindsay Bira d...

One to three percent of individuals with tinnitus experience significant reduction in quality of life. Factors that contribute to distress include personality variables, intolerance to loud noises, external locus of control, and pre-existing anxiety. Characteristics of tinnitus itself, such as perceived loudness, can also cause functional impairment. It is unknown whether different tinnitus sensations have various effects on either emotional or functional impairment, which can reduce quality of ...

This paper presents a narrative review of psychological treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that foster cognitive flexibility. A literature search identifying all peer-reviewed studies that have been published in English resulted in 28 reports on a range of interventions. After a brief introduction to cognitive flexibility (CF), a review of all relevant studies is provided. Overall, there is some evidence for CF playing an important role in recovery from PTSD. However, very few s...
