Welcome to the Rehabilitation Counseling and Community Inclusion Program at Wayne State University. The Rehabilitation Counseling program which is housed in the Division of Theoretical and Behavioral Foundations (TBF) in the College of Education prepares Rehabilitation Counselors to work with individuals with severe disabilities regardless of culture, ethnicity, and gender in an urban setting.
The program offers a Master of Arts degree in Rehabilitation Counseling, which reflects current trends in the practice of rehabilitation counseling, including, disability and personal adjustment counseling, career counseling, psychosocial and vocational assessment, job development and placement, supported employment, and the support of individuals with disabilities. The rehabilitation counseling program is consistent with the professional needs of the state-federal rehabilitation program, as well as the public and private rehabilitation agencies and facilities. The program consists of a combination of course work, field placement, practicum, and internship experiences. These provide students with the knowledge, skills, and competencies required to assist in the rehabilitation of persons with disabilities to help them achieve the highest level of functioning consistent with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.
In keeping with Wayne State’s commitment to urban education and practice, the Rehabilitation Counseling Program’s objectives reflect our urban and multi-cultural themes. The programprovides aneducational experience that is designed to help students acquireknowledge; skills and understandings needed to become committed and competent to help persons with disabilities participate in and contribute to the quality of life in a complex, changing urban society.
In response to the mandates established for rehabilitation programs, Wayne State University Rehabilitation Counseling program has been established as an interdisciplinary, competency-based approach to the training of rehabilitation counselors. The rehabilitation counseling program maintains relationships with community settings (i.e., state rehabilitation agencies, community agencies, hospitals, institutions, etc.) where working students can complete the clinical portions of their programs while fulfilling employment obligations elsewhere.
