The Rehabilitation Counselor as Client Advocate.
Stone, J. Blair
Effective rehabilitation requires the counselor to serve as his client's advocate. The goals of rehabilitation are clear and are product oriented. While skill as a counselor is required to achieve these goals for many clients, the clients represent problems which will require more than counseling skills before the problems can be resolved and the goals of rehabilitation achieved. The counselor can not leave the problems of social intervention on the part of clients up to others while he serves either as therapist or community coordinator. He must act in partnership with his client and demonstrate to his client that he is truly acting as his advocate before a partnership can be achieved which will lead to rehabilitation. (KJ)
