Selected References on Paraprofessionalism and Rehabilitation Counseling. Rehabilitation Occupations for the Disadvantaged and Advantaged; A Program of Research on Occupations and Professions in the Field of Rehabilitation.
Sussman, Marvin B.; And Others
A study is currently being conducted on rehabilitation occupations for the disadvantaged and advantaged. As defined by the study, the "disadvantaged" are those who have had an irregular work history; they tend to be the poor, or minority group members who have not had the education necessary to qualify for any but dead-end jobs. The "advantaged" are older workers who already have extensive job histories, but who are looking for a second, more satisfying career. Both could be candidates for paraprofessional work in rehabilitation, or for training in a professional rehabilitation career. As part of this study, a literature search was conducted to find books, articles, pamphlets and publications centered around paraprofessional and professional roles. Because not all material in this field could be included, references were selected on the basis of their relevance to the utilization of the paraprofessional. The paper is divided into five areas: Professional Characteristics, Professional/Paraprofessional Roles and Relationships, Paraprofessional Career Ladders and Training, Client versus Organization Identification, and Community Issues. When no author is given, the reference is listed alphabetically by title. The bibliography contains a total of 118 references. An author index is provided. (Author/DB)
