Excerpt

The Handbook of Rehabilitation Counseling is much more than a third edition of the authors’ previous books by similar titles. It not only updates much of the previous information, but also adds considerably to it. Many new authors are included in this comprehensive volume on the state-of-the art in rehabilitation counseling.

This book is an excellent introduction to the field of rehabilitation counseling but can also help update practicing professionals to new, cutting edge information. I strongly recommend this book as a text to be used in a foundations course. It also can be helpful to someone preparing for certification, licensure, or for a comprehensive examination in rehabilitation counseling. Many issues are presented that can give one an understanding of the basics of the profession. This book can also stimulate thinking that will lead to new research initiatives that may further our knowledge of the profession and the practice of rehabilitation counseling.

The beginning focuses on the profession, including the broad paradigms, societal context, history and systems, and policy and legal bases. It also includes standards of practice and ethics as well as standards that focus on qualified providers of rehabilitation counseling services relating to accreditation of preparation programs and certification of practitioners. The consumer context of the profession is also addressed including individuals and families and the increasing diversity of persons being served as well as those who provide rehabilitation counseling services. Thus the context of the profession is viewed in a holistic and comprehensive manner.

The remainder of the text is more specific and focuses on aspects of professional practice. Both settings (private and public) as well as services are addressed in this section including assessment, job placement, and case management. It also contains other elements of practice including cutting edge uses of technology, and supervision and administration.

The editors assembled an impressive list of contemporary experts who are very well qualified to address the topics selected. The collection of chapters will give the reader an excellent overview of current knowledge and future . . .
