Abstract : No disorder, disease, or human affliction has even been eliminated by treating its victims. Limiting one's focus to treatment (as opposed to prevention) only quarantees a steady flow of patients. While some people argue that this economic factor is crucial in the private practice environment, it clearly has no bearing on military psychology.
