Identifying contextual influences of community reintegration among injured servicemembers

Brent L. Hawkins, PhD, LRT/CTRS, et al.

Many servicemembers with physical and psychological injuries experience difficulty with reintegrating into their homes and communities after military service. Factors such as age, severity of injury, and social and physical environments likely influence the transition to community life. This study identified the personal and environmental factors that significantly influenced a sample of community-dwelling servicemembers. Results indicated that general self-efficacy, many social and physical environmental barriers, and perception of disability significantly influence community reintegration. The results of this study will help rehabilitation programs better prepare injured servicemembers for their transition.
