Episode: Rehabilitation Counseling – Fostering a Better Quality of Life for People with Disabilities
Pub date: 2021-01-08
Rehabilitation counselors provide independent living support and job readiness training for people with disabilities, empowering them to integrate more fully into the community. According to Drs. Maureen McGuire-Kuletz and Kenneth Hergenrather, directors of the Center for Rehabilitation Counseling Research and Education, there is a pressing need for more rehabilitation professionals as a generation of counselors prepares to retire. They discuss the intersection of disability and poverty, why this population has been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and what can be done to address these challenges.
