Abstract : The role of the Division Psychologist in Europe has been receiving an increased level of attention over the past number of years. The attention to this area has grown considerably with the recent surge in work being carried out examining the phenomena of combat stress reactions, or what has been more commonly referred to as psychiatric combat casualties. This is clearly an important area of work for all psychologists serving with the Armed Forces, though especially for those who are assigned to combat divisions. Fundamental as this may be to the role of the Division Psychologist, there are many other aspects to the job which are also significant. Those individuals who have had an opportunity to serve as a Division Psychologist, particularly in Europe, know that it would be very difficult to accurately describe all the different activities which make up the job description.
