This text provides, from a rehabilitation perspective, comprehensive coverage of the dominant theories and techniques related to the occupational development, vocational behavior, and the organizational factors that impact the career development and employment of individuals with disabilities. It is designed for the CORE-mandated required course on employment and career development for the Master's Degree in rehabilitation counseling and for Licensed Professional Counselor certification.
