Summary

This trial will study the effectiveness of SMART in increasing resilience and decreasing stress in U.S. Air Force personnel.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for active U.S. Air Force personnel at specific bases who are over 18 years old and can give informed consent. It's not open to those on temporary duty, civilians at the base, trainees in basic military training, prisoners, or anyone under 18.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial tests Stress Management and Resilience Training (SMART) delivered either in-person/video-teleconference or via Computer-Based Training to see if it boosts resilience and reduces stress among participants over time up to 36 weeks post-training.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this intervention involves non-medical stress management techniques, traditional physical side effects are not expected; however, participants may experience varying psychological responses to the training.

Trial Design

2Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: RandomizationExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
At two study sites, we will randomly assign participants to the VTC/in-person group or CBT group using a ratio of 2:1 to assign participants to the VTC/in-person or CBT training modalities. We anticipate 84 participants (42 per site) will be assigned to the CBT modality and 168 (84 per site) will be assigned to the VTC/in-person modality.
Group II: Self-selectionActive Control1 Intervention
At two study sites, participants will be able to self-select which SMART training modality they will complete (VTC/in-person or CBT).We aim to recruit 250 participants in the self-selection arm.

Other Research
Common treatments for improving Quality of Life (QoL) that are similar to the SMART trial include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), and other mind-body therapies. These interventions work by teaching patients skills to manage stress, enhance emotional regulation, and improve coping mechanisms. CBT focuses on changing negative thought patterns and behaviors, while MBSR emphasizes present-moment awareness and acceptance. These mechanisms are crucial for QoL patients as they help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, leading to improved mental and physical well-being, better sleep, and enhanced overall life satisfaction.
