This manual sets up guidelines, regulations, and responsibilities for counselor trainees, faculty supervisors, agency training supervisors, and training coordinators in the area of rehabilitation counseling.

The objectives of the manual include: (1) to guide the counselor trainee toward the development of specific professional skills and technical knowledge relating to the rehabilitation process; (2) to supplement the knowledge and skills learned in the academic setting; (3) to provide an opportunity for practical application of classroom instruction; (4) to provide the new counselor trainee with an opportunity to develop confidence in his ability to apply new learning and techniques in counseling situations; (5) to assist the counselor trainee in developing skills in planning for efficiency in the use of time and resources; (6) to assist the counselor trainee in making a valid prediction of client's potential and programs; (7) to develop counseling skills in assisting the client in gaining person insight.
