摘要

Objective: To determine the preparedness of rehabilitation psychologists to work with people with disabilities with primary or secondary substance-related problems by examining their education, training, and current practice. Design: Mail survey. Participants: 76 (47 men, 29 women) Division 22 members of the American Psychological Association. Results: Although 79% of respondents reported treating individuals with alcohol and other drug issues, over half rated their training in substance abuse treatment as inadequate. Referring to self-help groups and instilling cognitive-behavioral coping skills were common treatments. Participants reported a lack of preparation in substance abuse training in their graduate program coursework, practicum, and internship. Conclusion: Continuing education and changes to curriculum requirements, with linkage to existing certification bodies, should be considered to close the gap between training and practice.
