Relationship between coping, intercultural Competence, Ambiguity Tolerance & Adaptation performance in the context of a resilience concept in the military police of the Bundeswehr

During their service, service personnel encounter various challenges requiring them to adapt effectively in order to maintain the capacity to act. Within the scope of a modu­lar resilience concept focusing on the Bundeswehr military police, special emphasis was placed on the ability and wil­lingness of service personnel to adapt, which constitute re­levant factors in the promotion of psychological resilience. For validation purposes, cross-sectional data were collected and subjected to a statistical analysis of the correlations between social/task-related adaptive performance and in­tercultural competence, ambiguity tolerance, and coping style. The results of the multivariate regression analysis provide indications as to which correlations between the individual variables are relevant to training. These results are discussed in light of methodological limitations and con­sidered in the broader context of current research. Finally, implications for assignment-specific initial and follow-on training are explored.
