This chapter examines how the impact of those who serve in the National Guard or Reserve components may differ from those who are in the full-time military. The main challenge that confronts non-military clinicians working with National Guard and Reserve service members and their families is identifying the challenges impacting them. The repeated transitions from soldier to citizen to soldier and returning to the civilian workforce are notable. These service members and their families also face isolation in communities far from military bases, lacking official and peer support available on a military base and in a military community. Lack of recognition of the stresses during and after service also increases the potential negative impact.
