Aims & Scope

Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin (RCB) is the official journal of the American Rehabilitation Counseling Association (ARCA). RCB publishes articles on rehabilitation counseling with a major emphasis on data-based research reports, although other types of contributions to professional knowledge in rehabilitation counseling will be considered. Examples include articles that explain an innovative technique or application, point/counterpoint debates on a current controversy challenging the profession, or insightful essays on an important issue. Contributions of these kinds may be considered for a special section of RCB. Article topics cover a wide range—from ethical dilemmas related to counseling clients with HIV/AIDS to clinical problem solving in micro-case management. For example, a recent special series on ethics featured articles about ethical issues related to rehabilitation research, addiction counseling, and expert opinions and testimony.
