The crux of this graduate concentration focuses on all aspects of diagnostic assessment, evaluation, interviewing, and counseling. In addition, you will develop skills in casework planning and client services. Upon graduation, you’ll serve a vital role in the vocational, educational, and personal adjustment of persons who have a physical, mental, or emotional impairment or disability.
This concentration can lead to eligibility for certification as a rehabilitation counselor (CRC) after passing the required exam and graduating, and eligibility for licensure as a rehabilitation counselor (LRC). Frequently, the rehabilitation counselor or specialist is part of a team of physicians, psychologists, social workers, and other professionals who evaluate the problems of individuals and assist them to achieve maximum self-realization and independence.
Employment is readily available for well-trained professionals in state vocational rehabilitation programs, private rehabilitation services and agencies, public and private hospitals, institutions, and clinics.
