Rehabilitation Counseling Psychology

Program Description:

The Masters program trains graduate students in the skills required to become an independent practitioner or work as a contributing member of an interdisciplinary team providing services to people who have a mental, psychological, or physical disability. Rehabilitation Counseling Psychology is the process of assisting individuals to adjust, accept, and redesign dreams and goals. Although rehabilitation counselors participate in plans for medical and physical rehabilitation and consult with physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, physical therapists, prosthetists and orthotists, in addition to other allied health professionals, they offer rehabilitation counseling to individuals seeking psychological, vocational, substance abuse, and independent living rehabilitation. They act as case managers in more complex, multidisciplinary situations. They work in a variety of venues, including state and federal rehabilitation agencies, rehabilitation centers, employment services, sheltered workshops, prisons, hospitals, clinics, welfare offices, educational facilities, and private rehabilitation centers.
