Rehabilitation Research, Policy, and Education, v25 n1-2 p5-14 2011
The purpose of this white paper is to re-visit the call for unification of the professional associations representing rehabilitation counseling. The current status and issues associated with the multiple associations representing the discipline will be briefly reviewed. A brief history of collaborative efforts between these organizations, salient issues and trends, and observations about the critical need to unify our national professional associations will be included and discussed. Finally, a set of specific actionable steps will be recommended to move the discipline to unify and establish one professional association that represents all rehabilitation counselors both nationally and internationally.
