Emerging disabilities are disabling conditions that are new to medical science, often medically debated, and lacking in known etiology; or those increasing in prevalence in recent years. This master's-level text is the first to eschew traditional disabilities to focus specifically on the unique characteristics and needs of individuals with disabilities such as multiple chemical sensitivity, fibromyalgia, and Lyme disease, or those currently increasing in prevalence (e.g., diabetes, autism, PTSD), and explore their implications for rehabilitation counseling practice. The text is also unique in its examination of how disability causes, types, and patterns are changing in response to current medical, social, cultural, and environmental trends and addressing necessary changes to rehabilitation policies and practices to better serve consumers with emerging disabilities. The book explores important sociological and environmental phenomena such as global warming, pollution, poverty, violence, migration patterns, addiction, and substance abuse, and the changing age demographic of the United States that has altered the landscape of disability policy and rehabilitation services in the 21st century. Each chapter provides specific examples of disabling conditions and discusses their medical, psychosocial, and vocational significance. The authors examine implications for rehabilitation assessment, planning, and placement, and emphasize changes needed to rehabilitation policy and practice. The text is replete with practical evidence-based strategies for meeting the psychosocial and vocational needs of people with emerging disabilities. Chapters include case examples, learning objectives, and discussion questions. Key Features: Describes disabling conditions either new to medical science or increasing in prevalence in modern society Examines sociocultural, environmental, and legislative trends that have resulted in emerging disabilities Delivers policy, programming, and research recommendations to improve services and supports for Americans with emerging disabilities Provides practical, evidence-based strategies for meeting the psychosocial and vocational needs of people with emerging disabilities Includes learning objectives, case examples, and discussion questions Supplemental materials include PowerPoints, syllabus, and test bank

RESEARCH IN REHABILITATION COUNSELING provides the basics that one would need to begin conducting a research investigation. It was written as a primary text for graduate level students and practitioners concerning the role of research in contemporary rehabilitation counseling. It is the authorsf intent to provide a comprehensive overview of the philosophical, ethical, methodological, and analytic fundamentals of social science research, as well as to specify aspects of rehabilitation research that distinguish it from scientific inquiry in other helping professions. It has been thoroughly revised to accurately reflect the variation and wealth of research methodologies used in contemporary rehabilitation counseling research—more than 300 new references have been added. Most of the research examples cited were published in peer-reviewed rehabilitation counseling journals over the past decade, and these examples represent the current status of research methods as well as the most relevant contemporary topic areas of research and scholarship in the field. Accordingly, it may be used both as a research textbook and as a general introduction to the current scholarship. Because this book was written as an introductory research methods textbook for graduate students in rehabilitation counseling, the authors focus much of the information contained herein on the role of readers as professional consumers of rehabilitation research. It will prove to be an invaluable resource for counselors, administrators, policymakers, educators, researchers, people with disabilities, and consumer advocates.

Presents an innovative family-based approach to rehabilitation counseling that can be put to use immediately! While the family has traditionally been a secondary consideration in rehabilitation, this graduate text presents an innovative approach to rehabilitation counseling that focuses on the family as the center of a person-centered model, rather than as an adjunct to individual counseling. It advocates counseling in the context of community, requiring the recognition of social transaction as the primary focus of all interventions. The book provides the tools and knowledge base to effectively work with the family and within the community, delivering a new inclusive model of care and establishing best practices in research, practice, training, and management. The text examines the rationale for embracing family values in rehabilitation counseling and provides a framework that redefines the relationship between counselor and client in the context of family and community. It describes the community-based rehabilitation model in detail according to the International Classification of Function (ICF) and presents a series of illustrative disability profiles—distilled from systematic reviews of the literature—reflecting this framework. In each case, the impact upon family participation is illustrated and optimal service and support resources are identified. The role and function of the rehabilitation counselor provide the integrative conclusion to each chapter. The book also describes grassroots initiatives, the role of family in community-based rehabilitation in developing countries, family policy across rehabilitation systems, and best practices in research, training, and management. Additionally, the text comes with access to an Instructor‘s Manual that includes case study discussion questions, classroom activities, and multiple-choice questions. Key Features: • Describes an innovative family-/community-focused approach to rehabilitation counseling, framed in ICF taxonomy • Presents a pragmatic model that can be put to use immediately • Describes an array of family experiences across disability contexts, providing an opportunity to critique current practice through the lens of community-based constructs • Provides plentiful case studies based on family narratives • Broadens the scope of practice with service initiatives from around the world • Includes an Instructor‘s Manual with case study discussion questions, classroom activities, and multiple-choice questions
