Abstract
This proposal is for development of the remote Anger and Stress Management Tool (ASMAT). Our proposal meets the goal of the SBIR solicitation:"to develop a remote, technology enabled, anger and psychological stress treatment and management tool derived from current evidence-based interventions to help service members cope with post-deployment psychological health issues outside of the clinic and their integration into the family and community."We will achieve this goal by matching a set of evidence-based interventions for anger management and stress treatment to an enhanced version of a unique mobile eLearning platform that we are developing under a DARPA-funded SBIR Phase II project for a Stress Resilience Training System (SRTS). While the focus of the present proposal is clearly on intervention and not on prevention (as is the SRTS), we will be able to leverage much of the SRTS R & D work to create a more effective ASMAT within the present SBIR budget and time constraints. Further, the availability of the SRTS will enable us to achieve an ideal integration of content and platform. Finally, the transition and commercialization plan that we have put in place for SRTS will also assist us in rapidly transitioning and distributing the ASMAT product.
