Emerging Issues in Rehabilitation Counseling was written for use by practicing rehabilitation counselors, administrators, and educators. Chapter topics address new developments in the field of rehabilitation education and analysis of vocational rehabilitation, with discussion on the order of selection mandate in the Rehabilitation Act. Life care planning is presented as an intervention for people with catastrophic disabilities. Client assessment strategies, the Americans with Disabilities Act, job development and placement, and provision of post-employment services are offered as options to enable persons with disabilities to advance in their careers. The authors examine the use of disability management programs to coordinate the interaction between worker and workplace to minimize the effect of the disability on a worker's capacity to function. These programs include wellness programs, safety awareness, injury/illness prevention training, and employee assistance programs. The final chapter addresses these and other challenges that vocational rehabilitation specialists will likely face in the future, such as changes in occupational information, disability management, and managed care.Perspectives on the New Millennium Phillip D.
