Making the transition back to civilian life and civilian work environments after serving in the field can be a difficult challenge, especially for the newer and younger generation of servicemen and women who were deployed several times to Iraq and Afghanistan. The lack of access to adequate transitional counseling and services presents them with daunting challenges, such as finding employment and adjusting to the social environment of the civilian world that they are ill-equipped to handle and, in most cases, are unwilling (or don’t know how) to seek assistance to address. Also, currently there are no existing courses that adequately address the psychological factors of transitioning from military to civilian life before release or immediately after.
Many of the above issues can be avoided with early intervention and proper transitioning from the military. More

“REBOOT has been carefully designed to address reintegration issues at their root cause by focusing on the (service member’s) positive attributes and teaching attendees how to understand and control thoughts. The workshop works through numerous scenarios and guides them through various situations providing them with peer-to-peer advice and sound cognitive education. The workshop validates their experience and teaches them how to manage thoughts and develop social cohesion for their return home.”
REBOOT Class #19
I attended reboot 4 months before retiring in 2011 and found employment one month after separating from service. I got a federal job and even got promoted a year later. My training from Reboot continuously provides me the personal and professional confidence to excel in my profession. It’s very important to maintain the personal knowledge we gained from reboot, otherwise it’s just another training wasted if not used.
