Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between perceived percentage of time spent on particular rehabilitation counseling responsibilities, on one hand, and possession of an educational degree, certification as a rehabilitation counselor (CRC), and years worked for the state-federal vocational rehabilitation (VR) agency, on the other. Our national study of 483 vocational rehabilitation counselors in state-federal VR agencies provides evidence that there is little difference in the perceived percentage of time spent on specific work activities with respect to degree type, CRC, or years worked for the state-federal agency. Implications for rehabilitation counselors working for a state-federal agency are discussed.
