PSVF Transition Tools & Resources

Who Are You?

Assisting each Veteran to better understand their strengths and how these strengths can be deployed in the civilian sector is paramount to helping them better transition from military service. The PDP QuickView Report is generated from a simple and easy five minute online communication survey that provides a comprehensive report for helping each individual understand their strengths, communication style, and potential blocks to communication.

Where Are You?

The Transition Map and Action Plan provides a set of illustrations and insights to get a conversation started between Veteran Advisors and Veterans and their family members about where they find themselves in their transition from military to civilian life.

Where Do You Want To Go From Here?

“If you don’t have a goal, make your first goal, finding a goal” In some cases PSVF will encounter Veterans in crisis, in other cases, which are very typical, the Veteran is simply lacking a clear understanding of who they are and what their value is to the world. If crisis is encountered, listening and referring them to appropriate and immediate assistance is our focus. If their challenges are around career planning and advanced education, the Strong Interests Inventory provides a very specific set of career recommendations based upon each person’s interests, aptitudes and passions.

“As a three time Iraqi freedom veteran, my transition from military to civilian life was a very difficult process. The transition map and the self-assessment helped me to identify where I was in the transition process and provided me direction on the steps I could take to help me regain control of my life. I encourage any veteran that is in the process of transition to use this resource to help them, the way it has helped me.” William
