Description: Abstract: The initial period after military discharge is a vulnerable time period for Veterans and may be particularly challenging for Women Veterans, who have been found to have worse post-military readjustment outcomes in prior research. The current study drew from a nationally representative sample of participants from the Veterans Metrics Initiative (TVMI) Study to examine the extent to which Women Veterans experience unique readjustment challenges during the first three years after leaving military service. In this Cyberseminar Dr. Vogt will describe findings of this study, after which Dr. Galovski will discuss implications of study findings for the social support that is available to Women Veterans during their transition from military service to civilian life.
Target Audience: Health services and clinical researchers, clinicians, and policymakers
