Rehabilitation Counselors help disabled people who may have physical, mental or social disabilities. The goal is to help them get back to satisfying and productive lives. They might counsel patients about job training and help them find a job. They also may counsel them in adjusting to their new work environment.
Aspiring rehabilitation counselors need to meet state licensure requirements, which typically include holding a master’s degree in counseling, psychology or a related subject, as well as accumulating several thousand hours of clinical experience.
