An examination of EMDR with military populations entails consideration of the specific methods and challenges that clinicians encounter when using EMDR with the serving armed forces population. This chapter reviews the phenomenon of military mental health in a historical and current context, exploring concepts of combat-related PTSD, moral injury, and transdiagnostic non-combat-related trauma. It defines the distinct organizational and individual characteristics and unique culture of the armed forces population. The use of EMDR across the military deployment cycle is explored, with a particular focus on delivering EMDR in the home country and on deployed operations. Finally, the chapter proposes additional factors to consider across the phases of EMDR therapy, including considerations for risk assessment, diagnosis, conceptualization, and treatment planning for the military population.
