Rehabilitation Counselor Work Environment: Examining Congruence with Prototypic Work Personality
Zanskas, Stephen; Strohmer, Douglas C.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v53 n3 p143-152 2010
The profession of rehabilitation counseling has undergone extensive empirical study. Absent from this research has been a theoretical basis for describing and understanding the profession and its associated work environment. The focus of this study was to further our understanding of the nature of the rehabilitation counselor's work environment and the person-environment congruence through the framework of Holland's career theory and the "Position Classification Inventory" (PCI). Data concerning the work environment of 366 rehabilitation counselors were collected using a Web adaptation of the PCI to empirically establish the Holland code for the prototypical rehabilitation counselor work environment and examine its congruence with the prototypical "Strong Interest Inventory" interest patterns. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
