Job Satisfaction Among Rehabilitation Counselors: An Interim Report. Reprint Series. Number Three.
Kirchgessner, John B.
This study polled newly-employed rehabilitation counselors in an attempt to measure their attitudes concerning job satisfaction. It was hypothesized that job satisfaction of the counselor is related to: (1) the policies, practices, and working conditions of the employing agency (State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies); (2) the professional standards and practices of his work; and (3) his ability to engage in a self-satisfying occupation. A twenty-five item questionnaire was designed and administered to 140 counselors to draw out these attitudes. Although this report is interim in nature, a model profile of a "typical" rehabilitation counselor who participated in the study has been developed. A list of comments made by counselors is included. The results of the study tend to indicate that a large percentage of rehabilitation counselors lack a strong commitment to stay in the rehabilitation field. (SJ)
