The Vocational context of community inclusion is central to the professional identity of rehabilitation counselling and the most common focus of applied RC practice. Students will study the nature of work from theory to management; career theories and their application in vocational rehabilitation counselling (VRC), and the role of VRC in facilitating employment for persons with disabilities.; Students will engage in VRC interviewing, assessment, planning, implementing and monitoring of placement interventions in case study, simulation, and in situ contexts. Students practice using the international classification of function as a taxonomy for case conceptualisation and planning. The range of evidence-based and innovative vocational rehabilitation practices reviewed will expand student understanding of the scope of the counselling role especially in regards to work and disability.
