Group Description

Warfighter Advance was developed by Mary Neal Vieten, Ph.D, ABPP, CDR Medical Service Corps, USN(rc), and first executed in 2003 at Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico (SOP, 2003; Navy Medicine, 2004; APA Convention 2005).

Since its launch in 2003, elements of core content, education, interventional programming and experiential learning have been added, refined and tested. More than 900 veteran and active duty Warfighters with service records ranging from Vietnam to current conflicts have been positively impacted by our core team.

Warfighter Advance™ and it's core program: The ADVANCE -7 Day is designed to address the needs of veterans and active duty service members who have been formally diagnosed or are self-reporting with PTS, mTBI, anxiety, depression, or substance abuse disorders resulting from deployment-related trauma.

The ADVANCE™ Team is composed primarily of veterans, including a board certified psychologist, military chaplain, corpsman, and many senior veteran service members trained in reintegration and supporting transitioning wounded warriors.

The ADVANCE 7-Day Training Op focuses on education, confidence-building, outdoor activities and supported group discussion in a relaxed, positive environment using proven techniques for the self-management of symptoms, stressors, and responses. While structured, The ADVANCE™ Team listens to participants and tailors programming to their needs.

The ADVANCE 7-Day™ outcomes provide a range of tools and resources that veterans and active duty service members need in order to recover from PTS and associated polytrauma. Its programming is adaptable and meets the unique challenges of our Warfighters, but remains flexible enough to accommodate their evolving needs and interests in a non-medical and non-pharmacological format. It is one of the most intensive programs for veterans and active-duty personnel suffering from Post Traumatic Stress in the country.
