Role of the Vocational Counselor

The vocational counselor plays a critical role in the treatment of patients for whom return to work is a treatment goal. Initial assessment occurs as part of the screening process, but in-depth evaluation of interest, education, aptitude, physical capacities, learning capabilities, work experience, transferable skills, and vocational goals occurs on entry into the treatment program.

The goals are to identify vocational opportunities and barriers to effective employment. In addition to occupational counseling, the vocational counselor provides job-seeking skills training, placement counseling, job hardening, and information about educational options and liaisons services.
