CRC Credential Attainment by State Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors
Harpster, Anna M.; Byers, Katherine L.; Harris, LaKeisha L.
Rehabilitation Research, Policy, and Education, v25 n1-2 p57-62 2011
This study examines 137 state vocational rehabilitation (VR) counselors' perceptions of the value of having the Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) credential. While almost 53% of this sample included persons who were certified, the majority who were not indicated that the two major reasons for not currently having this designation were: (a) it was not required to be employed as a state VR counselor and (b) they planned to get it. In terms of perceived encouragement by master's degree program faculty to pursue the CRC credential, results reveal that for this group of vocational rehabilitation counselors, this influence did not have a substantial impact on CRC obtainment. Implications for the rehabilitation counseling field/education are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
