  • Opportunity for Combat Veterans

    Posted By: Veteran and Military Affairs, September 16, 2015
    You are invited to participate in veteran research and be rewarded for your time. The study is called “The Impact of Posttraumatic Growth, Transformational Leadership, and Self-Efficacy on Psychological Symptoms among Combat Veterans.” The study is being done by Michael LaRocca, a combat veteran who is a doctoral candidate at the University of Alabama. Your contact information was obtained through the UA Office of Veteran & Military Affairs. In the study, you will be asked to fill out several questionnaires about your combat experiences and how you have readjusted since your deployment. Your participation will take about an hour during a time that fits your schedule, and you may gain a better understanding of post-deployment positive coping mechanisms. You will also receive a $15 gift card.
