Abstract:

This book reviews and evaluates research related to improving vocational rehabilitation (VR) access and return to work rates among African American Wounded Warriors, Gulf War and Vietnam War Era veterans with disabilities. The book is divided into two sections. Section I contains general documents that provide a rationale for the need to address VR access and employment barriers for African American Veterans with disabilities. Section II contains white papers discussing research on issues faced by African American Veterans such as homelessness, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and other barriers that impact their employability. Section II concludes with a discussion of the need for evidenced-based research to address barriers and identify strategies that enhance employment success for veterans.
