Implementation of a Behavioural Medicine Program in the Hungarian Defence Forces: The Williams LifeSkills Experience II

doi: 10.32563/hsz.2019.2.7


In the first part of my article I was presenting the main knowledge of psychosocial risks and work-related stress especially in the military organisation, some of the main theories of work-related stress, and the general overview of psychosocial risk management interventions. Now, in the second part of the article, I present the main steps of the implementation process of a behavioural medicine program – Williams LifeSkills Training (WLS®) – in the HDF and the results of its effectiveness assessment. The main result of my study is that an individually focused intervention was effective in decreasing work-related stress (ERI) and in increasing resilience (MAQ) and well-being (WBI-5), and these positive changes were maintained in the 3 months follow-up, as well.
