Civilian psychologists are being called on to assist the thousands of service members returning from Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). Newly returning veterans are at risk for depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, and alcohol use disorders. In addition, veteran partners and families are at increased risk for stress and conflict. The following article provides clinicians with information on the impact of military service on the veteran and the family, then reviews ongoing family services available to veterans through the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). Finally, we describe recovery-oriented implications for practicing psychologists when treating veterans and their families. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved).
