Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation will provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of information about the major areas that constitute vocational rehabilitation.
Periodically, there will be topics that are directed either to specific themes such as long-term care or different disability groups such as those with psychiatric impairment. Often a guest editor who is an expert in the given area will provide leadership on a specific topic issue. However, all articles received directly or submitted for a special issue are welcome for peer review. The emphasis will be on publishing rehabilitation articles that have immediate application for helping rehabilitation counselors, psychologists and other professionals in providing direct services to people with disabilities.
Original research articles, review articles, program descriptions, and case studies will be considered for publication. Ideas for special topical issues are welcomed as well.
Abstract: These two publications deserve to be reviewed as a pair. The vision and philosophy of community inclusion is highly evident in both books. In fact, David Schwartz, the author of Crossing the River, wrote the preface in The Whole Community Catalogue. I specifically selected these books for the topic of this issue of the Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation because they provide a clear path for where supports are heading for individuals with disabilities. Family members need to hear people talk of capacities, not limitation; dreams, not goals and objectives; quality of life, not least restrictive environment; and inclusion, not separation.…Please share the contents of these two books with the family members and significant people in the lives of the individuals you support.
