The Profession, Functions, Roles, and Practices of the Rehabilitation Counselor.
Muthard, John E., Ed.; And Others
Four investigations of the rehabilitation counselor were presented to and discussed by representatives of universities, professional associations, and public and private rehabilitation agencies. Four major aspects of the counselor's professional development and practice were covered in these studies: (1) his perceived role and function within public and private rehabilitation agencies; (2) a series of investigations based on a multivariate system model of the state agency counselor providing clients services; (3) a pilot study testing methods of relating counselor effectiveness to his university training; and (4) two sociological studies of rehabilitation counseling as a profession with emphasis on career patterns of graduate students in the field and movement of individuals into the field as a second career. Comments by a qualified discussant follow each presentation. Also recorded are written and oral group reactions with respect to: (1) implications of each study for counselor practice; (2) implications of each study for counselor training; (3) suggestions for further research; and (4) other applications of the presented data.
