This fifth edition of A Guide to Vocational Assessment acknowledges the changes in social and economic systems facing adults with disabilities. It suggests multiple evaluation approaches and insights that can be used to change the difficult to the possible and eventually to the probable.
While many chapters underscore the use of traditional evaluation approaches, other chapters operationalize vocational assessment as an individualized, creative, empowering, holistic process and experience of self-discovery. This edition’s 15 chapters incorporate these issues, provide updated, expanded and new material, and emphasize that the process of evaluation should identify the consumer’s career-related strengths and potential to acquire specific skills. A new chapter focuses exclusively on the transition-age student, a topic receiving increased attention in vocational rehabilitation.
The text includes an experiential workbook, intended for use with the text, which provides discussion questions and exercises. The text’s Appendix contains description of forms that illustrate the information in Chapters 12 and 15 and include a Suggested Format for the Vocational Assessment Report. The forms are available as reproducible PDFs, which can be accessed online using the included code.
A Guide to Vocational Assessment, Fifth Edition complete kit includes: 496 page textbook, 72 page workbook, and reproducible forms available online.
