Understanding the Work Milieu and Personnel in Developing Continuing Education for Rehabilitation Counselors. Studies in Continuing Education for Rehabilitation Counselors.
Miller, Leonard A.; And Others
The objectives of the project are reviewed: (1) to develop demographic data on rehabilitation counselors and supervisors in state and federal agencies, as well as on their work milieu and certain perceptions; (2) to inventory the kinds of continuing education experiences being provided to practicing rehabilitation counselors; and (3) to test an experimental approach to continuing education. This second report presents the data gathered in pursuit of these objectives. Personal, educational, experiential, professional and attitudinal characteristics of counselors and supervisors are presented. The final sections concern: (1) the relationship of counselor characteristics to voluntary participation in an experimental program of continuing education, and to satisfaction with the program's learning units; and (2) the relationship of counselor training and experience to counselor knowledge and counselor participation in the experimental program (as measured by learning units completed during the first 5 months of the project year).
