Enhanced vocational rehabilitation for Veterans with mild traumatic brain injury and mental illness: Pilot study

Maureen K. O’Connor, PsyD, et al.

The purpose of this pilot study was to develop and understand the effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation embedded within vocational rehabilitation services, as offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs, for Veterans with mild traumatic brain injury and mental illness who want to return to the workforce. We found that Veterans who received embedded cognitive rehabilitation were more likely to participate in rehabilitative processes than those who received traditional vocational rehabilitation. Future research is warranted to determine the effectiveness of embedded cognitive rehabilitation as it pertains to improving competitive employment outcomes, cognitive functioning, and abilities in the workplace.
