The module includes reasons, and concepts that guide professional practice-including the history, philosophy or underlying values, guiding principles, and definitions of the profession, the scope of practice and role definition, vocational evaluation processes, testing principles, competencies, as well as legislation which influences a profession that serves diverse groups and potential workforce members. People with disabilities (e.g., physical, psychological or cognitive categorizations), those who face barriers to employment, unemployed, underemployed, educationally disadvantaged, dislocated workers, homeless as well as those who have been injured and cannot return to previous employment, and students transitioning from school to adult living comprise some of these groups.
