A Call for Integral Approaches in the Professional Identity of Rehabilitation Counseling: Three Specialty Areas, One Profession
Stebnicki, Mark A.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v52 n2 p133-137 2009
There are multiple indicators that suggest there is a shift in the foundational principles and practices in rehabilitation counseling that have created professional identity concerns. These concerns relate to (a) philosophical differences in the role and function of rehabilitation counseling professionals, (b) professional counselor licensure laws mandating eligibility standards for practice, (c) a variety of professional counseling associations' divergent agendas for communicating the professional counselor's identity, and (d) perceptions and observations made by our colleagues from the other counseling specialty areas about our identity.
