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: The two books chosen for this issue's topic are timely, revolutionary, and necessary reading for everyone preparing individuals to enter the work force of the future. Hammer and Champy (1993) outline the rationale for and offer stories of success from companies that had to completely rethink their processes to meet the ever-changing demands of new environmental influences. I found this book fascinating in the way parallels could be drawn to adult service providers. This book will be to the business community of the 1990s what Thriving on Chaos by Tom Peters was to the business world of the 1980s. Covey…(1989) researches successful business managers and presents a unique discussion about the habits commonly associated with these individuals.
