dc.description.abstractThe overall purpose of this project is to explore the connection between friendship and venting networks, and how they relate to the self-reported resilience levels of Navy recruits during basic training. This study hypothesizes that there is a positive relationship between friendship and venting networks, and that positive network attributes contribute to greater resiliency. Additionally, it hypothesizes that groups who received resilience interventions were more likely to report higher levels of individual and divisional resilience when compared to the control groups. Data for this project was derived from surveys conducted at Recruit Training Command (RTC) in Great Lakes, Illinois, in the summer of 2015. The 1,065 surveys come from a population of eight different recruit divisions taken at two different time intervals. This project used quantitative analysis to assess the relationship between friendship and venting networks and resilience. The results indicate that there is a relationship between friendship and venting networks, and that resilience interventions positively affect the network attributes as well as individual and divisional resilience. This project provides a basis for future study of resilience interventions and their effect on social networks in the military in order to promote resilience among its members.en_US
