Continuing Education for Rehabilitation Counselors: A Review and Context for Practice and Research.
Miller, Leonard A.; And Others.
This report deals with the continuing education of rehabilitation counselors both during and through employment. This type of a program requires information on how: (1) the structure and patterning of tasks in the work milieu, (2) administrative practices and attitudes, and (3) counselor characteristics can specifically influence what effect continuing educational experiences of both the during-employment and through employment variety have on desired outcomes. Research on instructional media has demonstrated that any format for training can be effective if designed according to what is known about teaching-learning linkage. Audiovisual hardware, macro forms of learning, laboratory experiences, and curriculum level structure are considered. Relating continuing educational outcomes to job performance criteria for the rehabilitation counselor is complicated in many ways, including the relative independence among intermediate criteria of counselor performance. Various studies, in the past, present, and future in continuing education for rehabilitation counselors conclude this report. (KJ)
