Specializations in Rehabilitation Counseling: One Program's Vision
Rehabilitation Research, Policy, and Education
The option for specialization is explored to address expanding roles for rehabilitation counselors. Several important considerations are identified for Rehabilitation Counselor Education (RCE) program faculty opting for a specialization. Development of specialty tracks in psychiatric and developmental disabilities are offered as viable options for a master's degree program in rehabilitation counseling. Authors discuss a model using a collaborative capacity-building process in response to national and state needs of persons with disabilities relative to rehabilitation counseling specialization.
