Arkansas Studies in Vocational Rehabilitation: Empirically Derived Rehabilitation Counselor Subgroups and Their Biographical Correlates. Special Report.
Rubin, S. E.; And Others
This monograph focuses on counselor types derived by means of self-report data. Eighty-seven counselors employed in 11 rehabilitation agencies completed the counselor biographical information form which had questions on personal, educational, employment, and professional development, and counselor-perceived proficiency and importance questionnaires. Seven major characteristics of the sample were reported. Results suggest that counselors can be divided into meaningful subgroups on both the basis of self-perception of work skill areas and different counselor interview subrole behaviors. Subgroups tend to run along a continuum from counselor-type to coordinator-type, and a relationship exists between those work behaviors a counselor feels proficient performing and those he perceives as being most important.
