About this Event:
This training will highlight findings from a mixed methods study of state vocational rehabilitation (SVR) directors (n=40) who completed an online survey that examined recruitment and retention problems of SVR counselors. A follow-up semi-structured interview with about half of this sample (n=19) was also conducted to further elucidate these problems and identify strategies that individual states have implemented to address them. The presentation will focus more on 12 strategies recommended to facilitate retention of SVR counselors. Attendees will have opportunity to provide reaction and comment on these strategies.
- Examine the major barriers confronting the public vocational rehabilitation program in recruiting and retaining qualified rehabilitation counselors.
- Evaluate the usefulness of 12 recommended strategies to facilitate retention of state vocational rehabilitation counselors.
