Employment outcomes from VA vocational services involving transitional work for veterans with a diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder.

Psychiatr Rehabil J 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Cooperative Studies Program Coordinating Center, VA Connecticut Healthcare System.

Objective: Transitional work (TW) for veterans with psychiatric disabilities is the predominant model of vocational rehabilitation in the Veterans Health Administration (VA). Although, on average, TW employment outcomes have been demonstrated to be inferior to supported employment, little is known about the potential subgroup of veterans for which TW may be most effective. This study of veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) examines differences in competitive employment outcomes and identifies characteristics of veterans who chose to engage in TW compared with those who did not.

Psychiatr Rehabil J 2018 Dec;41(4):341-350

Psychiatr Rehabil J 2018 Dec;41(4):258-265

The Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services.

Objective: This study aimed to improve our understanding of how to best assist marginalized youth during their transition to adulthood, and how to provide them services that help them achieve independence within existing public systems of care.

Method: Using purposive sampling methods, 17 direct service providers and supervisors of a large behavioral health organization participated in individual interviews and focus groups.

Results: A team of analysts identified eight primary themes: (a) the primacy of consistent and caring relationships with adults; (b) working with youth and family concurrently; (c) the complicated dance of autonomy and independence; (d) engagement of alumni and peers in service delivery; (e) transition navigator: an active not passive approach to becoming an adult; (f) youth as the drivers of treatment and recovery; (g) provider training and resources to address the unique needs of transition-age youth; and (h) broadening the definition of treatment.
