ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Arkansas
This study examines the effects of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) on the vocational identity, self-efficacy, and vocational satisfaction of persons with disabilities receiving SSI/SSDI. This study was carefully planned to help persons with disabilities obtain employment. A review of the relevant literature was used to determine the need for the study and to support the study. Forty participants, all were enrolled into a vocational rehabilitation program were selected for the study. Threats to internal and external validity were taken into consideration and controlled for. They received CBT as a treatment intervention to change their beliefs and irrational thoughts about the world of work. Measures of vocational identity, self-efficacy, and vocational satisfaction were taken at the start of the study to provide baseline data. The participants received eight weeks of treatment before measurements of vocational identity, self-efficacy, and vocational satisfaction were taken a second time to measure the effect of the CBT intervention. Means from pre-treatment, post-treatment and follow-up were analyzed for differences. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
