Beyond the Military: A Leader’s Handbook for Warrior Reintegration. Jason Roncornoni and Shauna Springer, Ph.D. Lioncrest Publishing

Returning to civilian life after serving in the military can be difficult. Not only will the veteran be impacted but also reentry into nonmilitary life will impact his or her family. The reader will be given over 30 exercises offered through the military decision-making process.  You will gain insights into how to grow and transition into a successful life after your commitment to the military. 

Veteran and executive coach, Jason Roncoroni, and psychologist and nationally recognized expert, Dr. Sauna Springer, have joined together to create a workbook to help veterans work their way through this important period of transition. Beyond the Military serves as a complete, interactive resource to address the deeper psychological, cultural, and relational aspects of reintegrating into civilian life.

The purpose of this handbook is to create a strategy for reintegration into civilian life. The handbook is structured in three parts that address the key and essential tasks to solve the complex problem of military transition and civilian integration. The intended outcome of this handbook is to help the veteran to recognize his or her individual identity including person values and unique purpose and they prepare to pursue opportunities for personal and professional fulfillment. The reader will be able to achieve a working plan for a successful integration which optimizes health, socialization, cultural assimilation, economic stability, professional preparedness, and family adjustment to life beyond the military. The veteran and his or her family will be inspired to strengthen relationships and live a more empowering life after leaving the military…..Carol
