In order to provide effective vocational rehabilitation services, the professional should have a clear understanding of what makes the “client tick”. The field of psychology offers a broad range of theories concerning human nature and behaviour. This module examines some of these schools of psychology, particularly as it relates to disabled clients entering or re-entering the workforce.
Upon successful completion of this session, students will be able to:
- Communicate a basic understanding of established counselling theories.
- Articulate a personal philosophy of vocational rehabilitation practices based on established counselling approaches with the framework which describes a person’s change process.
- Apply career development theories within an integrated, ecological, and evolving model of constraints and processes relevant to the career development of persons with disabilities.
- Appreciate an inclusive framework which considers the specific needs of persons with disabilities for the research and further development of career development theories.
