Ineffectiveness in military service has been demonstrated usually to be the product of transactional psychosocial processes, although a contrary official attitude holds that ineffectiveness is the result of a man's personality deficits. Rehabilitation practices vary widely in the armed services, often for reasons having little to do with the psychopathology of the ineffective man. The author concludes that by broader application of model military rehabilitation and crisis intervention programs the armed services could profitably promote both organizational and individual effectiveness.
