Report of the Veterans’ Identities Research Theme Working Group, Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research Forum 2016.
Transition from military to civilian life is challenging for all military personnel to some degree. Identity research help develop understanding of why some Veterans are more successful than others in adjusting to life after military service. Identities can be injured or nurtured during military-civilian transition. Reactions to identity challenges in transitions are normal.
