Overview

Injuries challenge almost everything we thought we knew about ourselves. There are almost as many reactions to injuries as there are injured service members. What makes the difference between someone who survives, grows, and ultimately thrives in the presence of a serious injury and someone who doesn't? Our material on Physical Injury is designed to help you begin to answer that question. If you are caring for someone with a physical injury you can take an assessment to get feedback on how you are doing, check out the videos of others who are dealing with physical injuries, read the short articles and FAQs or explore the e-library for in-depth information.

Assessment

Adjusting to physical injuries is a mental process, and is influenced by your personality and life experiences, your pre-existing health, support from family and friends, and the meaning you assign to the event that caused your injury. Just as sports competitions are won or lost based on attitude, determination, and practice, so is winning the challenge posed by an injury. It involves pulling together strengths and incorporating new strategies.

The Physical Injury Assessment, and each of the related assessments below, takes about five minutes to complete; recommendations follow based on your results.
