This paper is a sample case study for the second in a series of instructor-assisted training modules for rehabilitation counselors, supervisors, and graduate students. This case file for the second module focuses on the counseling skills needed for rehabilitation of the severely disabled and provides an illustration of the rehabilitation/goal-setting process, i.e.: (1) obtaining necessary knowledge during the intake interview and from medical evaluations; (2) planning psychological and vocational evaluations for the severely disabled; (3) processing client evaluation data; and (4) setting goals with the client. This sample client's file presents the intake interview summary, results of medical reports, and a work evaluation form rating general abilities, personality characteristics, proficiency in physical task performance, and work aptitudes and behaviors. Other forms include the results of test scores, specific vocational and rehabilitation goals and recommendations, and supporting evaluation data. (MCF)
