Professional Credentialing: A Doomsday Machine without a Failsafe.
Thomas, Kenneth R.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v37 n2 p187-93 Dec 1993
Provides critical assessment of this special journal issue devoted to credentialing in rehabilitation counseling and credentialing movement in general. Contends that primary purpose of professional credentialing in counseling is not to protect the weak but rather to increase the power, authority, and incomes of the strong. Advises caution in implementing credentialing mechanisms. (NB)
