Rehabilitation counselling : the quest for professional relevance
Biggs, Herbert C. (2004) Rehabilitation counselling : the quest for professional relevance. Australian Journal of Rehabilitation Counselling, 9(2), pp. 130-136.
The global community is experiencing widespread and rapid changes to labour force participation with increasing expectations of flexible and highly adaptable skill sets. Workers can expect demands to acquire new and augment existing competencies as an integral part of he labour contract. Continuing education, professional development, competency augmentation, and lifelong learning are the occupational mantras of the Millennium. If this is an expectation within the workforce, what then are the expectations of support professionals such as rehabilitation counsellors who expect to exercise considerable skill at client workforce re-entry? This paper examines a range of issues for ongoing skilling and provides a set of recommendations for ongoing contemporary professional relevance.
