Dating back to the 1900s when Psychology was just getting going with the likes of Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory in correlation with WWI and the Great Depression taking the world by storm. You can observe a common thread in the evolution of psychology methods best serving the veteran population in their specific generation. We will be providing more insight and data-backed research on this in our upcoming qualitative research study turned white paper in partnership with the University of Texas, San Antonio in the coming weeks.

In the meantime enjoy, review, reflect, and feel free to share this infographic that will reveal why military veteran suicides continue to rise, why over 65% of the 230,000+ post 9/11 transitioning veteran population are leaving their first post military career within 24 months, according to the Center for a New American Security, and why this new generation of veteran getting out today is more lost, confused, and lacking a sense of purpose than any other generation before them.


Maslow wrote in 1954: 

“The science of psychology has been far more successful on the negative than on the positive side; it has revealed to us much about man’s shortcomings, his illnesses, his sins, but little about his potentialities, his virtues, his achievable aspirations, or his full psychological height. It is as if psychology had voluntarily restricted itself to only half its rightful jurisdiction, and that the darker, meaner half”

(Maslow, 1954).
