Importance of Addressing Sexuality in Certified Rehabilitation Counselor Practice
Kazukauskas, Kelly A.; Lam, Chow S.
Rehabilitation Education, v23 n2 p127-140 2009
This study investigated Certified Rehabilitation Counselors' (CRCs) beliefs about the importance of addressing sexuality issues during rehabilitation. A modified version of the Family Life Sex Education Goals Questionnaire (FLSEGQ) was completed by 199 CRCs to determine which issues CRCs believe are most important to address. Six sexuality-related factors were identified: Counseling and Education; Contraception, Pregnancy and STDs; Sexual Development and the Body; Family Inclusion; Traditional Values and; Contemporary Values. Analysis of means revealed that CRCs believe all sexuality-related issues to be important to address during rehabilitation, but that Counseling and Education and Contraception, Pregnancy and STDs are the most critical. Sexuality-related goal planning was found to be the most important item overall. Results suggest that additional training in disability and sexuality issues is needed. Implications for future research are reviewed. (Contains 4 tables.)
