This chapter describes the negative impact that unemployment can have on veterans and their families (including increased anxiety, depression, marital fights and problems, and even suicidal thoughts). To counter these problems, psychological practitioners can help veteran clients find employment or go back to school. Techniques that clinicians can use and resources that can be shared to help clients with their job search or school application process are presented. The skills and benefits that veterans can bring to civilian employers are enumerated. Suggestions are offered on how to help clients thrive and succeed in the new workplace or educational cultures. Information and recommendations are provided so that practitioners can help disabled and wounded veterans succeed in their post-military employment or education. Suggestions about when and how to discuss disabilities in the workplace and educational environments and how to request and obtain accommodations are presented.
