It's no secret that transitioning from the military is extremely difficult. Even if a servicemember walks straight into a new job paying the same as what they made in the military, the stresses of suddenly working in an entirely new context can be overwhelming. But why is it so difficult, and what can a newly-minted veteran do to mitigate that stress?
In Separating From Service, Eric Burleson describes the unique psychological challenges that veterans face as they transition out of the military and provides an actionable framework to address those challenges. Combining research from neuroscience, clinical psychology, psychiatry, and focusing specifically on the veteran experience, Separating From Service provides information and exercises to ease the transition process for those who served our country. Includes a foreword written by Nate Boyer, former Green Beret, Texas Longhorn, and Seattle Seahawk.
