Dr. Stephen Soldz, director of the Center for Research, Evaluation, and Program Development at the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis, is seen here at the school in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, on Tues., Oct. 25, 2011.  Soldz is critical of the a new collaborative program between the US Army and the American Psychological Association called Comprehensive Soldier Fitness.  CSF is a big-budget "resilience training initiative" focused on positive psychology designed to prevent the psychological toll of combat on American soldiers.  Soldz has many criticisms of the program, including that there has not been a pilot study of it and that positive psychology is not the best approach to something inherently negative, such as the killing of another person.  Soldz teaches research methodology at the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis. His research has approached many topics over his career, but in the past five years, he's focused on the use of psychology in human rights applications.
