Abstract : In response to repeated requests for information about how to develop training program for the management of combat stress reactions, a series of workshops were planned. The purpose of the first Users' Workshop on Combat Stress was to present a forum to: exchange ideas, share information on resources, and identify points of contact among combat division behavioral scientists. The first Users' Workshop on Combat Stress was held at the Academy of Health Sciences on the 3rd and 4th of September 1981. Combat units were contacted regarding the purpose of the workshop; the Academy of Health Sciences agreed to pay for one member of each mental health team provided the home post paid for the additional participants.
