Current Training Needs of Private Rehabilitation Counselors

[Free, No CEUs] This presentation will focus on the results of the Knowledge Validation Inventory - Revised (Leahy et al., 2009). The self-reported need for training was reported across the ten knowledge domains of rehabilitation counseling. The survey identifies the current training needs of counselors in the private-for-profit rehabilitation system in the context of changing demographics of new client populations with unique rehabilitation needs, including those with autism spectrum disorders, traumatic brain injuries, and substance abuse disabilities. Currently rehabilitation counselors receive little preparation in their MA programs for working with these growing populations.

Objectives

  1. Identify the current training needs of counselors in the private-for-profit rehabilitation system in the context of changing demographics of new client populations with unique rehabilitation needs, including those with autism spectrum disorders, traumatic brain injuries, and substance abuse disabilities
  2. Compare the self-perceived training needs of private rehabilitation counselors with the self-perceived training needs of certified rehabilitation counselors (CRCs) and licensed professional counselors (LPCs)
  3. Evaluate the relationship between counselor demographic variables and self-perceived training needs.
