Perseverance and Progress Career Counseling for Military

Seth Hayden, Leigh Green, and Katherine Dorsett
2013

The push for increased access of counselors to military personnel requires clinicians to be aware of issues common within this population. One emerging issue is military personnel who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), the signature wound of the recent conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Career counseling offers a useful intervention to assist in their rehabilitation. Given the potential issues this injury presents to career development, creating a framework to enhance the ability of service members and veterans with TBI to effectively navigate a career choice is essential to addressing their needs. This article will discuss a strength-based approach, which utilizes aspects of cognitive-behavioral therapy, to assist military personnel with traumatic brain injury in their career development.
