Job Search and PTSD


What does job search have to do with PTSD? Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been found to affect many Vets after they return from duty in combat situations. Stress from life traumas, changes and losses affect us all so it is not difficult to appreciate the challenge of dealing with the memories of one’s experiences under combat conditions. In many cases PTSD is intensified as the result of physical disabilities and health factors. In the same way, PTSD can be exacerbated by the lack of meaningful work. When you transition from the military, you have lost your job! Job Search: The Total System provides a positive, proactive approach to finding the right job for your career and life goals.

In addition to finding the right job, you may have a need to address other effects of PTSD on your life. An ideal resource to help you is The Combat Trauma Healing Manual by Rev. Chris Adsit and published by the Military Ministry Press. For more information on this excellent resource, visit
