Exploring the Relationship Between Familiarity With the ICF and Rehabilitation Counselor Confidence in Facilitating Workplace Accommodations

Exploring the Relationship Between Familiarity With the ICF and Rehabilitation Counselor... Purpose The International Classification of Functioning (ICF) provides a framework for understanding and accommodating disability. This study examined predictors and outcomes of ICF familiarity among rehabilitation counselors. Method Analysis of variance and hierarchical regression analysis were used to examine research questions related to ICF familiarity. Results Rehabilitation counselors with five or fewer years of experience were more familiar with the ICF. Analysis showed familiarity with the ICF positively correlated with greater confidence in recommending work accommodations. Conclusions Data supports use of the ICF in rehabilitation counseling. Emphasizing the ICF in specific courses (e.g., medical aspects of disability, career and vocational development) may support improved practice. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Rehabilitation Research, Policy and Education Springer Publishing

Abstract

Purpose The International Classification of Functioning (ICF) provides a framework for understanding and accommodating disability. This study examined predictors and outcomes of ICF familiarity among rehabilitation counselors. Method Analysis of variance and hierarchical regression analysis were used to examine research questions related to ICF familiarity. Results Rehabilitation counselors with five or fewer years of experience were more familiar with the ICF. Analysis showed familiarity with the ICF positively correlated with greater confidence in recommending work accommodations. Conclusions Data supports use of the ICF in rehabilitation counseling. Emphasizing the ICF in specific courses (e.g., medical aspects of disability, career and vocational development) may support improved practice.
