Development of a Self-Report Inventory for Assessing Reactions to Program Content of a Rehabilitation Counseling Program.
Scorzelli, James F.
In order to assist the newly formed rehabilitation counseling program at Northeastern University in curriculum and instructional planning, a job task analysis was conducted. The sample consisted of 55 employed rehabilitation counselors in the New England region from both state agencies and rehabilitation facilities. The results of the study were in agreement with previous research on Rehabilitation Counselor Education (RCE) program content, indicating an emphasis on vocational counseling skills, community resources, and methods of client evaluation. However, contrary to previous research, the areas of job placement and followup received relatively moderate to low ratings, suggesting that the practitioners may feel that it might be more efficient and practical to relinquish these duties to support personnel and paraprofessionals. Although the small sample size prevents any wide spread generalizations, the job task outline could be a useful tool in the curriculum and instructional planning of other newly formed RCE programs.
