Cocco, Karen M.; Harper, Dennis C.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v46 n1 p34-41 Fall 2002

Data indicate further exploration might be worthwhile. This article critically reviews the available research, identifies areas for further exploration, and offers suggestions for professionals in rehabilitation counseling. (Contains 27 references.)
