Abstract : This report summarizes my attendance at The Third International Conference on Psychological Stress and Adjustment in Time of War and Peace hosted in Tel Aviv, Israel. During my attendance at this conference I obtained information concerning battle stress casualties suffered by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) during their recent conflict in Lebanon. The information contained in this report was obtained primarily from my attendance at panel presentations scheduled by the conference. Some unofficial supplemental information was obtained through private conversations with members of the Israeli Mental Health Department of the IDF, an IDF paratroop officer and a reserve IDF tank sergeant who was a member of a tank crew which saw action in the Lebanon conflict.
