SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Perhaps there is someone out there well versed in military psychology who may be able to give me some insight on this: <br><br>I would like to specialize in military psychology have come across an opportunity to work for the U.S. Army's Human Terrain System - an operation that conducts social research side by side with the military and local communities on their deployments (ie. Afghanistan). <br><br>Now, I've done some investigating and found that there is a lot of criticism from professional organizations such as the American Anthropology Association, American Psychological Association and the American Medical Association as to the ethical nature of the social research being done over there. (ie. not obtaining informed consent etc.). I realize that there are plenty of other ways to get involved with the military, but I'm attracted to the non-traditional nature of this field work and feel that this research position may really set me apart from other PhD applicants when I choose to apply. <br><br>Given my career goals of becoming a military psychologist, this opportunity sounds incredible, HOWEVER, I am reluctant to do anything that may "blacklist" me in the eyes of the APA for the future. Is there anyone out there who knows anything about HTS and can possibly shed some light on this for me? <br><br>Thank you!!
