Abstract

Thirty-eight consecutive separations from employment in a supported employment program for persons with traumatic brain injuries were examined. Five categories of reasons for separation were identified, in order of frequency reported: (1) issues related to the employment setting, (2) interpersonal relationship problems, (3) mental health problems and criminal activity, (4) other problems, and (5) economic layoffs. Excluding true layoffs (temporary suspension of work for economic reasons only), over three fourths of the separations involved more than one reason. Potential strategies for reducing the occurrence of the problem areas were discussed.
