It gives us great pleasure to write the preface to this book, the second in the series of monographs produced by the European Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine. No part of medicine, no clinical intervention, is complete without thinking about its effect on the person’s life and the quality thereof. One of the most powerful determinants of this is work; a source not only of income, but of satisfaction and a sense of purpose and worth. The Academy, founded in 1969, is composed of senior European doctors spec- lising in Rehabilitation and Physical Medicine. It meets regularly to discuss matters of importance in the field, including teaching, research and ethical matters. It recognises that the ability of the speciality and of related ones to decrease dependency and increase autonomy and quality of life needs to be better known. Hence the production of these monographs. They will help readers access a vast amount of literature on the practice of rehabilitation and its effectiveness. They should be particularly useful to young doctors preparing for the European Boards certification in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine as they are authoritative and cover subjects in depth. Topics covered in the series range from basic sciences to the most applied areas.

This is the first fundamental text to focus specifically on forensic vocational rehabilitation, a field that is forecast to grow rapidly. Forensic vocational rehabilitation consultants evaluate the vocational and rehabilitation needs of individuals in an array of legal settings such as civil litigation, workersí compensation, Social Security disability, and others. The text is unique in its exploration of the vocational rehabilitation process from a biopsychosocial perspective that views disability as a complex and multidimensional construct. The book comprehensively describes the parameters and theoretical issues of relevance in evaluating and developing opinions in forensically oriented matters. It culls and synthesizes current peer-reviewed literature and research on this private subspecialty practice area of rehabilitation counseling, including theories, models, methods, procedures, and fundamental tenets of the field. Also included is current information about the labor market, life care planning, and professional identity, standards, and ethics. The text is designed for graduate and postgraduate students in rehabilitation counseling and psychology as well as practicing forensic vocational rehabilitation consultants and professionals moving toward practice in this arena. Chapters are authored by noted scholars or published practitioners in each subject area, and include an introduction to the content area, discussion of key terminology and concepts, and a review of the current and historical literature, with emphasis toward future research needs and evidence-based practice. The book fulfills the requirement by the Commission on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) for training in this subject area at the graduate level for new certification or certification maintenance. Key Features: Comprises the only foundational text to focus specifically on forensic vocational rehabilitation Synthesizes peer-reviewed research into one authoritative source Describes the role, function, and scope of practice of the rehabilitation counselor in private forensic vocational rehabilitation practice Fulfills CORE requirements for certification

In 2004, the Vet. Affairs' Vocational Rehab. and Employment (VR&E) program was reviewed by a Task Force. It recommended numerous changes, in particular focusing on employment through a new Five-Track service delivery model and increasing program capacity. Since then, VR&E has worked to implement these recommendations. This report determines: (1) how the implementation of the Five-Track Employment Process has affected VR&E's focus on employment; (2) the extent to which VR&E has taken steps to improve its capacity; and (3) how program outcomes are reported. The author interviewed officials from VR&E, the 2004 Task Force, and vet. org.; visited 4 VR&E offices; and surveyed all VR&E officers. Includes recommend.

This text provides an overview of vocational rehabilitation (VR) practice, making it the perfect companion for students and practitioners with an interest in supporting people back to work and improving their sense of health and well-being. The book is divided into three parts: the first covers the policy context of VR in the UK, defining VR, outlining the development of national standards in the sector, and looking at issues such as the economy and worklessness, and the legal background. The second part examines models of VR practice and relevant standards. It explores the nature of developing services in the public and private sectors, illustrated by case studies from a range of disciplinary backgrounds. The final part presents a detailed introduction to the knowledge and skills required in providing a VR service, including consideration of the multidisciplinary processes and stages involved. Introduction to Vocational Rehabilitation includes numerous case studies and a dedicated chapter of issues and questions to aid reflection. Comprehensive and evidence-based, this is the first multidisciplinary textbook for students and practitioners from a range of backgrounds, including occupational therapy and health, physiotherapy, human resources, nursing, social work and health psychology.

Although vocational rehabilitation of drug users is a comparatively neglected area it is of paramount importance for the social integration and quality of life of (former) drug users. It is also essential if these persons are to reach and maintain a drug-free life style. This international seminar took stock of the current state of vocational rehabilitation in Europe, discussed ways of improving existing services, and made critical presentations on projects which could serve as models. One of the aims is to encourage networks of vocational rehabilitation specialists to be set up.

This book presents the state of the art in the application and implementation of the WHO's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) in the areas of vocational rehabilitation as a primary topic and disability evaluation as a secondary topic. Application of the ICF and implementation strategies toward a holistic and comprehensive approach to work disability and vocational rehabilitation programs are presented along with clinical cases and exercises. The ICF as a topic in health and disability has been gaining momentum since its approval by the World Health Assembly in 2001, and great progress has been made since then. However, the integration if the ICF in the realm of vocational rehabilitation has been lacking despite the fact that work and employment are a major area in people's lives, particularly those who have work disability. This book will advance the professional practice of vocational rehabilitation, rehabilitation counseling, occupational medicine, and allied health science.
