The purpose of this research is to explore factors that affect expression of maladaptive behaviour amongst recruits population. The research itself is cross-sectional and its includes collection of data from related bibliography in electronic databases as well as data from questionnaires using scales of General Health, Suicide Risk and Interpersonal Problems.
Army recruitment is particularly exhausting psychologically since recruits are abruptly detached from their family and social environment and must adapt to new habits upon entering the army. Multitasking, continuous education, pressure for disciplined behaviour, tense moments with superiors and colleagues may lead to maladaptive behaviour.
This survey was conducted on a sample of 200 recruits in recruitment centres of Mesolongi and Athens. Results have shown that the average rate of general health (psychological distress) was 3,09 (SD = 4,11), the profile of interpersonal problems was 82,14, (SD = 38,16) and suicide risk was1,36 (SD = 2,05). Pearson relevancy indicators “r” were calculated between general health index (psychological distress) and its factors, suicide risk index and dimensions of interpersonal problems profile. General health index (highest psychological distress) was positively correlated with all other indexes. Higher affinities were detected between all general health indexes and suicide risk. Moderate correlation was observed between the index of interpersonal problems and overly accommodating behaviour and self-sacrifice.
