Rehabilitation Counselor Preparation for Working with Youth with Psychiatric Disabilities
Mellin, Elizabeth A.; Hunt, Brandon; Lorenz, Dawn C.
Rehabilitation Education, v23 n1 p33-42 2009
Faculty in CORE-accredited rehabilitation counseling programs (N = 46) were surveyed to assess preparation for work with youth with psychiatric disabilities and to identify barriers to developing and maintaining a specialization focused on this population within the curriculum. Although faculty reported that students enrolled in their programs were interested in working with youth with psychiatric disabilities, there appears to be minimal attention to this area given existing curricula and clinical experiences. These findings underscore the importance of ongoing professional dialogue about graduate training and significant workforce needs that require entry-level rehabilitation counselors to expand their competence in this area.
