American Military University (AMU) professor John Moore presented an interesting study on coping with long-term deployments and post-traumatic stress disorders at the Air Force Association’s 2006 Air & Space Conference and Technology Exposition last month.

Moore outlined four steps for reducing the stress of long-term deployments:
1. Develop a stress prevention plan
2. Establish healthy communications
3. Follow a routine
4. Reassess the plan – and change what isn’t working
