Veterans’ identities and well-being in transition to civilian life – a resource for policy analysts, program designers, service providers and researchers : report of the Veterans’ Identities Research...: V32-279/2017E-PDF
"Transition from military life to civilian life is challenging for all military personnel to some degree. Although most do well, the changes are quite difficult for some. In the wake of the Second World War, researchers began to understand the importance of “identity” in transitioning successfully to civilian life from military service. Since then, researchers have been working hard to understand what happens to serving members’ sense of who and what they are and how they relate to society after they leave the military. The goal of their work is to support the well-being of Veterans (former military members) and their families. This Technical Report highlights important implications for policy and program development, service delivery, communications, commemoration and societal recognition. Identity research explains why Veterans helping Veterans (peer support) is important in helping Veterans deal with identity challenges as they adapt to civilian life. The research shows how civilians can become sensitive to Veterans’ identities. The report suggests priorities for research needed to answer remaining important questions about Veterans’ identities and well-being”--Plain language summary, p. 5.
