  • Disability Self-Worth and Positive Personal Meaning in Disability:
           Correlates of Hope Among U.S. Residents With Physical Disabilities
    • Authors: Mercedes A. Zapata
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Research is beginning to indicate that positive disability identity is associated with positive psychosocial outcomes among people with disabilities. Personal disability identity (PDI) refers to self-concept as a person with a disability. Two studies were conducted to examine (a) the psychometric properties of new PDI subscales and (b) the association between the new subscales and hope, a cognitive motivational construct. In Study 1, the author examined the structural validity and internal consistency of recently developed measures of PDI (i.e., disability self-worth and personal meaning in disability) in a sample of 247 adults with physical and sensory disabilities. In Study 2, the author examined the association between the two PDI subscales and hope (i.e., pathways and agency) in a subsample of 147 U.S. residents. In Study 1, internal consistency of all instruments was supported and confirmatory factor analyses supported the structural validity of the PDI subscales in a sample representing a broader disability subgroup than the original measurement development study, which had exclusively examined adults with visual impairment and blindness (Zapata, 2019). In Study 2, findings from hierarchical linear regression indicated that scores on disability self-worth and personal meaning were significantly and positively associated with hope scores (p < .001), after accounting for demographic and disability characteristics. Study 1 found preliminary evidence to support the use of two new PDI subscales (i.e., disability self-worth and personal meaning) in academic research among adult U.S. residents with physical and sensory disabilities. Study 2 introduced disability self-worth and personal meaning as predictors of hope. Given prior research on the relationship between hope and positive adjustment among people with disabilities, these findings contribute to the emerging literature on the predictive role of disability identity in positive life outcomes among adults with disabilities.

  • Technology and Communication Considerations for Engaging Youth Receiving
           Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits: Vocational Rehabilitation
           Counselor Perspectives
    • Authors: Catherine Anderson, Emily A. Brinck, Audrey Trainor, Amanda Schlegelmilch, Matthew Roskowski, Ellie Hartman
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Technology has been shown to enhance daily activities, increase participation in individualized planning and supports, and accommodate the transition needs of students with disabilities. This study examined the benefits and challenges regarding technology use when providing transition services for youth and families receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Specifically, it explored the nuances of employing technology to encourage engagement in Wisconsin Promoting the Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (WI PROMISE) services and foster communication between counselors and participants. This qualitative study used a constant comparative method for analyzing data collected through two focus groups of WI PROMISE counselors. Counselors identified technology as essential to maintaining contact with WI PROMISE participants as well as extant barriers including inconsistent access to the internet, financial expense, and insufficient training and support. Recommendations for using technology to communicate with transition-aged youth and their families will be discussed.

  • An Examination of Barriers and Facilitators of Job Satisfaction and Job
           Tenure Among Persons With Disability in South Korea
    • Authors: SunHee J. Eissenstat, Yunsoo Lee, Sojung Hong
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of the study is to investigate the barriers and facilitators of job tenure among persons with disabilities (PWD), using the theory of work adjustment, which explains that the correspondence between person and environment predicts job satisfaction and consequently job tenure. This study utilized the ninth Panel Survey of Employment for the Disabled (PSED) data set compiled from 1,755 employees with disabilities in South Korea in 2016. The results show that education-level match and aptitude match are associated with job satisfaction, whereas the effect of job–skill match on job satisfaction was not significant. Job discrimination experience and accessible work facilities were significantly related to job satisfaction, which is a significant predictor of job tenure.

  • Understanding Persons With Disabilities’ Reasons for Not Seeking
           Employment
    • Authors: Denise C. Fyffe, Anthony H. Lequerica, Courtney Ward-Sutton, Natalie F. Williams, Vidya Sundar, John O’Neill
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Unemployment is common for persons with disabilities but little is known about the different reasons why people with disabilities may not be seeking employment. This study identified the reasons that people living with disabilities report for not seeking employment, from the 2015 Kessler Foundation National Employment and Disability Survey (KFNEDS) and variation of reasons by demographic, socioeconomic, and disability characteristics. We conducted a content analysis of responses to an open-ended question on the KFNEDS. The analytic sample (n = 1,254) included adults (ages 18–64) living with disabilities, who self-identified as either unemployed or not seeking employment. Team coding used a hybrid inductive/deductive approach to identify nine meaningful reasons why people with disabilities may not seek employment. Overall, medical conditions, functional limitations, or their disability were more likely to be reported as reasons for not seeking work, rather than situational reasons associated with workplace engagement, such as “lack of job opportunities.” Bivariate comparisons of codes across demographic, socioeconomic, and disability characteristics noted variability in reasons reported by respondents by sex, race/ethnicity, age, household income, and disability. These findings provide an understanding of diverse reasons for not seeking employment, which can inform programs and policies that promote labor force participation of people with disabilities.

  • Testing Kumpfer’s Resilience Model Among Adults With Serious Mental
           Illness
    • Authors: Deyu Pan, Jennifer Sánchez
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Having a serious mental illness (SMI) is often associated with significant adversities, and people respond differently to adversities. The existing research supports that people with SMI can achieve and maintain positive life outcomes despite experiencing adversities. Resilience, the ability to cope with (or bounce back quickly from) crisis, can help buffer the negative effects of various types of adversities, including chronic illness and disability, and facilitate the psychosocial adaptation process to SMI. Kumpfer’s resilience model, a person-process-context framework, has been widely used to conceptualize, and assess for, resilience in various populations, including people with chronic illnesses and disabilities. However, the research in resilience among people with SMI is very limited. The purpose of this study was to empirically assess the utility of Kumpfer’s resilience model and its proposed predictive components for conceptualizing the adaptation process to SMI. One hundred forty-four participants completed a Qualtrics survey containing demographic questions and a series of validated instruments representing the major components of Kumpfer’s resilience model. Hierarchical regression analysis was used to analyze the data, and the final model explained 71% of the variance of the dependent variable—adaptation to disability. Avoidance coping, internalized stigma, and optimism were significant independent predictors of adaptation to disability. This study supports the utilization of Kumpfer’s resilience model to conceptualize the adaptation to disability process among people with SMI. Implications for rehabilitation counseling practices are discussed.

  • Psychometric Validation of Adapted Inventory of Virtues and Strengths
    • Authors: Jeong Han Kim, Jaehoon Lee, Taryn V. Richardson, Dong Hun Lee, Brian T. McMahon, Hyeyoung Kim, Rebecca R. Sametz
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study was to validate the Adapted Inventory of Virtues and Strengths (AIVS). AIVS is a unique instrument that operationalizes virtues in terms of character traits that are specially designed for psychosocial adaptation and rehabilitation. Data were collected from 464 individuals with disabilities and analyzed via the combination of exploratory (n = 256) and confirmatory analyses (n = 208). Although the results suggest dropping some items, the original five-virtue structure was supported and confirmed via both analyses. The construct validity of AIVS was further analyzed via correlation analyses between AIVS and other measures including Values in Action Inventory of Strengths 72-Item, Satisfaction with Life Scale, Connor-Davison Resilience Scale, and General Self-Efficacy Scale. The results suggest that with continuing research to document reliability and validity, AIVS has potential in the context of rehabilitation research. Further discussion on psychometric information of AIVS and future implications were presented.

  • On-the-Job Treatment of Employees With Disabilities: A Grounded Theory
           Investigation
    • Authors: Lynn C. Koch, Rachel Glade, Christine M. Manno, Aten Zaandam, Lauren S. Simon, Phillip D. Rumrill, Christopher C. Rosen
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Workplace mistreatment is common for workers with and without disabilities. Overt forms of mistreatment in the workplace (e.g., abuse, bullying, harassment) have been well studied; however, less is known about more subtle forms of workplace mistreatment for employees with disabilities. The purpose of this study was to examine how workers with disabilities are treated on the job, the types of mistreatment present in the workplace, the consequences involved (if any), the courses of action taken (if any), and workers’ satisfaction with the outcomes of actions taken. We used a grounded theory approach to learn from 26 employees with disabilities about their experiences with workplace treatment. Primary themes that emerged from the data were (a) the emotional toll of being mistreated on the job; (b) attempting to “grin and bear it,” as one participant described it, to avoid mistreatment; (c) a desire to feel a sense of belongingness at the workplace; and (d) the intersection of disability characteristics, individual characteristics, and work environment characteristics that influences how people with disabilities are treated on the job. Implications are presented for understanding the role that rehabilitation counselors play in helping workers and employers to respond to mistreatment of employees with disabilities.

  • Parent Perspectives on Pre-Employment Transition Services for Youth With
           Disabilities
    • Authors: Michele A. Schutz, Jessica M. Awsumb, Erik W. Carter, Elise D. McMillan
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Parents have long been recognized as critical supports and partners to youth with disabilities preparing for the world of work. We collected survey responses from 253 parents of transition-age youth with disabilities regarding their views on practices related to pre-employment transition services (Pre-ETS), the overall employment preparation of their children, potential barriers to future employment, and their knowledge of local transition resources. Parents reported that their children would benefit from an array of employment-focused transition practices. However, they were quite mixed in their views of prevailing barriers and current employment preparation. Moreover, a large majority of parents said they were unfamiliar with a range of transition-related resources available in their communities. In some areas, the views of parents differed based on the type of community in which they lived (i.e., rural vs. non-rural) or the nature of their child’s disability (i.e., intellectual and developmental disabilities vs. other disabilities). We offer recommendations for supporting families as they prepare their children with disabilities for life after high school.

  • An Examination of the Relationship of Core Self-Evaluations and Life
           Satisfaction in College Students With Disabilities
    • Authors: Susan Miller Smedema, Deborah Lee, Muna Bhattarai
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      For many students with disabilities, the transition from high school to a postsecondary educational institution can be challenging as they navigate a new environment with new or different supports. Recent research has demonstrated strong relationships between core self-evaluations (CSE) and a variety of psychosocial and employment outcomes in individuals with disabilities. The purpose of this study is to test a mediation model of the relationship between CSE and life satisfaction in 195 college students with disabilities. Hayes’ (2018) PROCESS macro for SPSS was used to evaluate the model. The results showed that acceptance of disability, social support from significant others, employment-related self-efficacy, and social self-efficacy partially mediated the relationship between CSE and life satisfaction. The direct effect of CSE on life satisfaction was still significant after controlling for the effects of all mediators. Overall, CSE affected life satisfaction in college students with disabilities, both directly and indirectly through improved disability acceptance, greater support from significant others, increased employment-related self-efficacy, and improved social self-efficacy. Implications of the results to improve life satisfaction in college students with disabilities are discussed.

  • Resilient Coping Types in People With Spinal Cord Injury: Latent Class
           Analysis
    • Authors: Chungyi Chiu, Jessica Brooks, Alicia Jones, Kortney Wilcher, Sa Shen, Simon Driver, James Krause
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Resilience is central to living well with a spinal cord injury (SCI). To provide a timely, targeted, and individualized intervention supporting resilience, it is necessary to assess an individual’s resilience level and characteristics of resilience on an ongoing basis. We aimed to validate the different types of resilient coping among people with SCI (PwSCI), using the Connor–Davidson resilience scale, and to identify the relationships between resilience and other psychosocial factors among the types of resilient coping. We recruited 93 PwSCI, who took the self-report measures of resilience, depression, life satisfaction, and spirituality. Using latent class analysis, we found three types: (a) goal-pursuing, bouncing-back, and persevering, named GP; (b) uncertainty about coping with setbacks, named UC; and (c) loss of resilient coping, named LOSS. The multivariate tests indicated that the three types differed on a linear combination of resilience, depression, and life satisfaction, with a large effect size. We discussed the three types of resilient coping and the implications for psychosocial interventions. We also recommended that rehabilitation clinicians examine PwSCI’s resilience levels and types of resilience during initial and follow-up visits. In doing so, PwSCI will have timely, targeted supports for developing and/or re-building their resilience.

  • Association of Demographic and Disability Characteristics With Total
           PROMISE Expenditure: Wisconsin PROMISE Findings—Brief Report
    • Authors: Emre Umucu, Beatrice Lee, Veronica Estala-Gutierrez, Timothy Tansey
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this exploratory study was to examine whether demographic and disability variables predict total health care expenditure of Wisconsin PROMISE. The findings are intended to assist in promoting cost-effectiveness for future similar initiates. This study data were extracted from Wisconsin PROMISE data set. This study had a total of 1,443 youth with disabilities (Mage = 14.89). The majority of participants were male (69%). Our results indicated that some demographic and disability–related characteristics are associated with total health care expenditure in control with VR case during PROMISE, control without VR case during PROMISE, and treatment group. Overall, findings of the current study suggest demographic and disability variables do assist in predicting total health care expenditure of Wisconsin PROMISE.

  • Evaluation of Constructs Based on Self-Determination Theory and
           Self-Efficacy Theory as Predictors of Vocational Rehabilitation Engagement
           for People With Physical and Sensory Disabilities
    • Authors: Kanako Iwanaga, Fong Chan, Timothy N. Tansey, William T. Hoyt, Norman L. Berven
      Pages: 131 - 144
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Volume 64, Issue 3, Page 131-144, April 2021.
      Although gainful employment is associated with health and well-being, people with chronic illness and disability may be ambivalent about the prospects of working. As a result, those who might benefit from vocational rehabilitation (VR) services do not always fully engage in those services. Limited motivation toward participating may be due to factors related to self-determination and autonomous choice. Rehabilitation counseling researchers are beginning to test Deci and Ryan’s self-determination theory (SDT), along with Bandura’s self-efficacy theory (SET), as a work motivation model in VR. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate SDT and SET constructs as predictors of VR engagement in a sample of VR clients, using hierarchical regression analysis. After controlling for the effects of demographic variables and person–environment (P-E) contextual factors, SDT and SET predictors were found to account for an increase of 40% in the variance explained in VR engagement. Working alliance was the single strongest predictor of VR engagement, followed by job performance self-efficacy and autonomy supportive climate. Interventions to enhance counselor skills to promote working alliance, in addition to vocational training to increase job performance self-efficacy of rehabilitation clients, may strengthen motivation to engage in VR services, leading to better employment outcomes.

  • Rehabilitation Counselor Supervisors’ Perceptions of Counselor
           Professional Dispositions for Rural Service Delivery
    • Authors: Trenton J. Landon, Scott A. Sabella, Michelle McKnight-Lizotte, Charles Bernacchio
      Pages: 145 - 157
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Volume 64, Issue 3, Page 145-157, April 2021.
      Professional dispositions are recognized as a fundamental to counselor professional practice, but this construct remains largely undefined. This qualitative study explored the professional dispositions that rehabilitation counselors should demonstrate for effective service delivery, particularly within rural areas. The researchers conducted semi-structured interviews to gather perspectives on the conceptualization and identification of professional dispositions in the field. Participants for this study were practicing rehabilitation counseling supervisors (n = 14) from five states and largely represented state/federal vocational rehabilitation agencies (n= 12). A preliminary, field-driven definition of the term professional disposition is presented, and primary dispositional categories are identified. Findings indicated three major dispositional themes that are necessary and generalizable to rehabilitation service delivery: traditional rehabilitation counseling values, professional attitude and conduct, and ethically principled behavior. A theme discrete to rural rehabilitation is also identified, community oriented. These domains reflect a focus on the client, the agency, and the community. The concept of ethically principled practice was a bridging theme that connects and is interwoven across the three main themes. Implications for practice and future research suggestions are also discussed.

      The focus of this article is on women with mental health illness and themes pertaining to issues of gender in their mental health experiences and in their treatment by peers and family. Grounded theory methodology was utilized in the data analysis of semi-structured interviews with 20 women with mental health illness. Findings revealed several themes related to gender in the experiences of women with mental health illness. These themes include male leverage, gendered emotions, weight worries, caretaker demands, friendship barriers, higher expectations, and double standard of violence. Implications for rehabilitation counseling will be discussed.

  • Understanding Disability Biases in Undergraduate Rehabilitation Students:
           An Exploratory Study
    • Authors: Allison Levine, Jinhee Park, Hung Jen Kuo
      Pages: 172 - 180
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Volume 64, Issue 3, Page 172-180, April 2021.
      Shaping and cultivating positive attitudes toward people with disabilities is an important task for all programs that prepare future rehabilitation practitioners. So too, is identifying potentially problematic attitudes or biases about ability status. With the growth of undergraduate rehabilitation programs, it is imperative for educators to understand the factors that may influence students’ biases about people with differing ability status. Many training programs address explicit biases (e.g., those measured via self report), but overlook the influence and existence of implicit biases among students. Furthermore, many trainings focus on stimulating awareness of potential bias, rather than diving into causes and impacts. In order to develop effective curricula for mitigating bias and training infused with social justice, it is critical to understand this phenomena. Using a quantiative design, the current study examines explicit and implicit biases of students in undergraduate rehabilitation programs at three institutions across the United States. Results support that explicit and implicit biases are two separate constructs and should be treated as such (i.e., educational activities about bias are not sufficient). In addition, the results were indicative of the importance of addressing biases as multidimensional, and the potential utility of contact experiences as a factor for mitigating bias.

      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Volume 64, Issue 3, Page 181-191, April 2021.
      This article continues a series of reviews of rehabilitation doctoral dissertation research. In 2012, there were 30 doctoral dissertations completed from identified doctoral programs in rehabilitation counseling. Dissertations were indexed by research topic, methodology used, model, and statistical analysis. An annotated bibliography is provided. A consideration of institutional productivity and doctoral graduate employment outcomes were also included in the analysis. Results of the current analysis show that a majority of studies comprised quantitative descriptive research designs. Unlike analyses from previous years, advanced and basic statistics were utilized equitably. The proportion of dissertations focusing on attitudes toward persons with a disability was greater than any of the prior reporting periods. Predictive outcome studies and clinical population research also remain prevalent. Implications for the practice of rehabilitation counseling, education, and future research are discussed.

  • Parental Caregiving Burden, Depression, Social Support, and Life
           Satisfaction: A Multigroup Analysis of Social Support for Parents of Young
           Children Suffering From Brain Lesions
    • Authors: Eun-Young Park
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Social support refers to people’s interpersonal relationships and is a potentially powerful mediator for caregivers’ life satisfaction. This study examined the relationships between parental caregiver burden, depression, social support, and life satisfaction. It compared these relation variables between parents of preschool- and school-aged children, as mediator effects of social support may differ across age ranges. Data were used from the Ministry of Health and Welfare of Korea’s research on support services and policies for people with brain lesions. Parental caregivers of preschool- (n = 93) and school-aged (n = 91) children participated in this study. A multigroup analysis indicated a significant negative relationship between caregiving burden and depression with social support and parental life satisfaction and a significant positive relation for social support with life satisfaction for the overall group, preschool- and school aged. Social support was a mediator for each group; however, the regression weight differed between preschool- and school-aged children’s parents. The study confirms the importance of caregivers’ social support and suggests a need for family support strategies that account for children’s ages.

    • Authors: Ming Hung Wang, Jessica Marie Brooks, Kanako Iwanaga, Jia Rung Wu, Xiangli Chen, Beatrice Lee, Stuart Rumrill, Fong Chan
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of the study was to examine whether disability acceptance, hope, and resilience mediate the relationship between functional disability and life satisfaction in people with a lived experience of an infectious viral disease (i.e., polio and postpolio syndrome [PPS]). Participants consisted of 157 individuals diagnosed with polio or PPS who were recruited from two community support organizations in Taiwan. Participants completed self-report questionnaires. Data were analyzed with a simultaneous regression analysis. The tri-mediation model indicated that disability acceptance, hope, and resilience were associated with life satisfaction, accounting for a large effect size of 46% of the variance in the life satisfaction scores. The direct effect of functional disability on life satisfaction became insignificant when the mediators were controlled for in the model. Hope, disability acceptance, and resilience were found to fully explain the association between functional disability and life satisfaction. This study demonstrated that positive psychosocial factors might help to buffer the indirect and direct negative effects of functional disability on life satisfaction. Implications of these findings for future research and clinical practice when supporting individuals with a lived experience of an infectious viral disease, including COVID-19, are discussed.

  • Predicting Recovery in Individuals With Serious Mental Illness: Expanding
           the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health
           (ICF) Framework
    • Authors: Jennifer Sánchez
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      People with psychiatric disabilities experience significant impairment in fulfilling major life roles due to the severity of their mental illness. Recovery for people with serious mental illness (SMI) can be a long, arduous process, impacted by various biological, functional, sociological, and psychological factors which can present as barriers and/or facilitators. The purposes of this study were to: (a) investigate the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) framework’s ability to predict recovery in adults with SMI and (b) determine to what extent the ICF constructs in the empirical model explain the variance in recovery. Participants (N = 192) completed a sociodemographic questionnaire and various measures representing all predictor and outcome variables. Results from hierarchical regression analysis with six sets of predictors entered sequentially (1 = personal factors-demographics, 2 = body functions-mental, 3 = activity-capacity, 4 = environmental factors, 5 = personal factors-characteristics, and 6 = participation-performance) accounted for 75% (large effect) of the variance in recovery. Controlling for all factors, by order of salience, higher levels of significant other support, education, executive function impairment, and social self-efficacy; primary, non-bipolar SMI diagnosis; greater resilience; lower levels of explicit memory-health impairment, affective self-stigma, and cognitive self-stigma; being younger; fewer self-care limitations; less severe psychiatric symptoms; and being unemployed and unmarried were found to significantly predict recovery. Findings support the validation of the ICF framework as a biopsychosocial recovery model and the use of this model in the development of effective recovery-oriented interventions for adults with SMI. Clinical and research implications are discussed.

  • Stages of Change Scale to Measure Work Readiness of Transition-Age Youth
           With Disabilities: A Promising Approach
    • Authors: Amanda Schlegelmilch, Matthew Roskowski, Emily A. Brinck, Catherine A. Anderson, Ellie Hartman, Fong Chan, Timothy Tansey, Heidi Decker-Maurer
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      The experience of transitioning into adulthood is a critical phase in life. The navigation of government benefits adds further complexity that can affect employment outcomes for youth with disabilities. Some individuals hesitate to work out of fear to losing access to monetary, disability, and related health care benefits. However, using available work incentives while pursuing employment and career paths can provide opportunities to work and address poverty without forgoing needed services. The Wisconsin Promoting Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (PROMISE) research grant aimed to positively change youth readiness to work through the use of Motivational Interviewing, work incentive benefits counseling, financial capability building, shifting expectations, and help in navigating transition resources. To measure the impact on readiness to work, 126 transition-age youth receiving supplemental security income (SSI), 188 of their family members, and 411 Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) counselors working with the youth and families completed a modified Stages of Change Scale survey. Results indicated that youths’ work readiness and positive feelings about work significantly increased from baseline to follow-up, along with an increase in employment rates. The implications of these findings highlight the utility of incorporating the stages of change theory into the design and implementation of services and supports to increase work readiness for youth with disabilities in transition.

  • Workplace Discrimination Experiences of Americans With Alcohol Use
           Disorders and Americans With Drug Use Disorders: A Comparative Analysis
    • Authors: Mykal Leslie, Cynthia J. Osborn, Phillip Rumrill, Brian McMahon
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study was to investigate the patterns in allegations of workplace discrimination by individuals with alcohol use disorders (AUDs) relative to those with other drug use disorders (DUD). The goal of the research was to describe the uniqueness of workplace discrimination, both actual and perceived, that has occurred against individuals with AUD when compared to those with DUD through analysis of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Integrated Mission System (IMS) database. An ex post facto, causal comparative quantitative design was used to examine Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) Title I complaints received by the EEOC from individuals with AUD (n = 2,123) from 2009 through 2016 in comparison to ADAAA Title I complaints received from individuals with DUD (n = 1,472) over the same time period. Results revealed statistically significant differences in the patterns of issues alleged by the two groups. The AUD charging parties (individuals who filed the complaints) were, on average, significantly older and involved fewer African Americans than did the DUD comparison group. Individuals with AUD were significantly less likely than the DUD group to achieve merit closures when investigations were completed. This means that the DUD group’s investigations were more often closed as favorable to the charging party. Implications for rehabilitation practice and further research are discussed.

  • Brief Report: Participation Among Transition-Aged Youth With Traumatic
           Brain Injury in the State/Federal Vocational Rehabilitation System
    • Authors: Charles Edmund Degeneffe, Mark Steven Tucker, Zaccheus James Ahonle
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      This study aimed to understand the level of participation among transition-aged youth with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the State/Federal Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) System in the context of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Case closures, case duration, and case expenditures in Federal fiscal years (FYs) 2014, 2015, and 2016 were examined among transition-aged youth (i.e., State VR clients under the age of 22 years at application) with TBI, autism spectrum order (ASD), and intellectual disability (ID), using a nonexperimental and descriptive design. A disproportionate number of transition-aged youth with ASD and ID had closed State VR cases compared with transition-aged youth with TBI. Alternatively, there were greater State VR case duration levels and case service expenditures for persons with TBI compared with those with ASD or ID. The disproportionate participation with State VR was consistent among these three groups via eligibility for services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. This article highlights areas of attention concerning transition-aged youth with TBI and will hopefully stimulate future dialogue, research, and policy development concerning participation with State VR for this population.

  • Disability Affirmation Predicts Employment Among Adults With Visual
           Impairment and Blindness
    • Authors: Mercedes A. Zapata
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Empirical research on psychosocial correlates of employment among adults with visual impairment or blindness (VI) is limited, and previous studies involving psychological constructs have reported generally nonsignificant or mixed findings. Considering persistent disparities in employment outcomes faced by people with VI, further investigation is needed to understand the role of psychosocial factors in employment in this population. In the current study, stepwise logistic regression was used to explore the association between personal disability identity (i.e., disability affirmation and disability acceptance) and employment status in a sample of 180 working-age U.S. residents. Results indicated that employment status was predicted by higher disability affirmation (p = .001, odds ratio [OR] = 2.21) in a model that included demographic and impairment-related variables that have previously been examined in employment among adults with VI. The exploratory model predicting employment also included higher educational attainment (p < .001, OR = 6.03), self-reported visibility of disability (p = .006, OR = 4.22), age (p < .001, OR = 0.94), and use of mobility tool (p < .001, OR = 0.05). The regression model yielded a pseudo R2 value of .32, indicating good fit. Important among these findings, the current study introduces disability affirmation, which involves disability pride and positive self-concept as a person with a disability, as a predictor of employment among working-age U.S. residents. Rehabilitation counselors may benefit from a consideration of the role of disability affirmation in consumer employment outcomes.

  • The Relationship Among Demographic Factors, Transition Services, and
           Individual Development Account (IDA) Saving Participation Among
           Transition-Age Youth With Disabilities
    • Authors: Weneaka D. Jones, Brian N. Phillips, Ellie Hartman, Malachy Bishop, Timothy N. Tansey, Catherine A. Anderson
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Saving participation in adolescence is crucial for young adults to achieve financial well-being over their lifetime. Yet, very little is known about the factors that encourage saving participation among youth with disability, including youth who receive supplemental security income (SSI). This study examines relationships between personal and family factors, transition services, and participation in Wisconsin Promoting Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (PROMISE) individual development account (IDA), within a sample of youth with disabilities who receive SSI. Results of the hierarchical binary logistic and hierarchical multiple regression analyses suggests that the PROMISE interventions variable sets emerged as the most frequent predictors of IDA saving participation among youth receiving SSI. Specifically, work incentive benefits consultation services, financial capability-focused financial coaching services, and self-advocacy training were significant predictors of a youth’s IDA saving participation. This study’s findings offer important implications for transition planning and building financial capability.

  • Building a Management Information System with Inter-Agency Data Sharing to
           Improve Data-Based Decision Making Across Systems: Experiences From
           Wisconsin PROMISE
    • Authors: Michael Guentherman, Ellie Hartman, Amanda Schlegelmilch, Emily A. Brinck, Catherine A. Anderson
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Inter-agency data systems can improve data-based decision making across service systems. The Promoting the Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (PROMISE) federal research demonstration projects required inter-agency collaboration to provide needed support to youth receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and their families. Wisconsin PROMISE built a system that gathered data from multiple agencies and provided a holistic picture of participants for use in evidence-based decision making. The inter-agency management information system (MIS) supported both formative evaluation of operational activities and short- and long-term impact analyses. Wisconsin PROMISE provided services and collected participant data using information technology (IT) systems distributed across eight different state agencies and multiple divisions within those organizations. The framework implemented for the Wisconsin MIS met the project objectives for an interorganizational data system and addressed the inherent challenges of collecting interorganizational data. The MIS was used for sharing data for both service delivery and research, while providing insight into the effectiveness of PROMISE project initiatives and all agencies serving the individual and their families. The purpose of this article is to share an example of how a MIS was built so others can replicate and/or use lesson learned to build something similar for their own purposes.

  • Psychometric Validation of a Measure Assessing Functional Limitations of
           Students With Disabilities: An Adaptation of the World Health Organization
           Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0
    • Authors: Emre Umucu, Amanda Schlegelmilch, Emily Brinck, Ellie Hartman, Kanako Iwanaga, Veronica Estala, Matt Roskowski, Beatrice Lee, Catherine Anderson, Timothy Tansey
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      The 12-item World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0 (WHODAS 2.0) has been used to assess functional impairments in various disability populations and has been shown to be applicable to the youth population. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule II–Youth Version (WHODAS-Y). Results of the study revealed a two-factor solution, including the socio-cognitive index and self-care index. The WHODAS-Y measurement appears to be a reliable and valid measure of function impairment in transition-aged youth with disabilities in a community setting. This assessment tool can be integrated in vocational rehabilitation practices and guide rehabilitation counselors in identifying needs and facilitators related to education and employment-related services, as well as understanding health care needs in youth with disabilities.

  • Understanding PROMISE Participant Transition Experiences Using Qualitative
           Data: Reflections on Accessing Services and Employment Outcomes
    • Authors: Amanda Schlegelmilch, Catherine A. Anderson, Emily A. Brinck, Matthew Roskowski, Audrey Trainor, Ellie Hartman
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Youth with disabilities transitioning from high school to adulthood experience barriers in achieving competitive integrated employment outcomes comparable with peers without disabilities. Promoting Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (PROMISE) in the state of Wisconsin (WI) serviced 2,024 youth and families with 1,018 accessing services and supports, including, but not limited to, soft skills, self-advocacy, benefits counseling, career counseling, and paid work experiences. This qualitative, multiple case study purposively selected four youth participants and their families to represent one of four categories: engaged and acquired paid employment, engaged and did not acquire paid employment, unengaged but did acquire paid employment, and unengaged nor acquire paid employment. Results indicated that participants across all four case studies expressed the desire to work and were optimistic about the future resulting from their experience with WI PROMISE. This study will go beyond the results and provide lessons learned and implications for future research.

  • Perceptions of Individuals With Multiple Sclerosis About Their Career and
           Illness: The Case of Turkey
    • Authors: Ozlem Ulas-Kilic, Emine Feyza Aktas
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is one of the most common neurological disorders that is difficult to predict and prevent in the world. In parallel to the physiological effects of MS, the unpredictable changes involved in the illness influence the process of planning for the future. From this point of view, this study is intended to examine the career trajectory of people with MS. To better understand how MS-related changes impact the career trajectories of people with MS, interviews were completed with 10 individuals with MS living and working in Turkey with a focus on the career development process. The results indicate that people with MS experience physical, mental, and psychological symptoms and career barriers; however, they adjust to these symptoms with some strengths and coping strategies. The most common career path in this study is continuing, which means participants tried to deal with their illnesses, and stated their wish to be promoted in their fields by meeting the requirements. Finally, participants also reported receiving support from different resources such as family, supervisors, and colleagues and having altruistic values.

  • Early Vocational Rehabilitation After Serious Injury or Illness: A
           Systematic Review
    • Authors: Vanette McLennan, Dominika Ludvik
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this systematic review was to compile the evidence for early vocational rehabilitation interventions for people with major injury or illness. Embase, Scopus, Cochrane Library, Medline, CINAHL, and Psycinfo databases were searched. Five hundred abstracts were reviewed for eligibility. Full-text review of 125 studies revealed a total of 25 published studies that met the eligibility criteria to be included in this review evaluating early approaches to vocational rehabilitation and return to work. Findings suggest that intervening early with respect to an individual’s vocational goals is imperative, although the definition of “early” varies. Programs achieve better vocational outcomes when specifically employing comprehensive vocational interventions, including vocational assessment, individualized planning, and follow-up support, to ensure a person’s return to employment is timely and sustained. Integration of vocational rehabilitation professionals within a multidisciplinary team and access to advocacy services were shown to be effective inclusions in early vocational rehabilitation programs for people with a serious injury or illness.

  • Foundations for Living: Evaluation of an Integrated Employment and Housing
           Program for People Living With HIV
    • Authors: Yung-Chen Jen Chiu, Liza M. Conyers, SunHee J. Eissenstat, Mark Misrok
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Unstable housing and unemployment have been identified as major structural barriers to optimal HIV treatment outcomes among people living with HIV (PLWH). One solution is to provide integrated services that combine medical, employment, housing, and other psychosocial services to address the complex needs of PLWH. This program evaluation reports outcomes of the Foundations for Living program: an integrated employment and housing services program designed for PLWH. Employment and housing outcomes of participants who completed at least one 6-month reassessment were reported by frequency analysis. HIV immune health (CD4 count and viral load) are examined using a matched paired t test. HIV prevention outcomes were assessed by examining changes in the percent of participants with an undetectable viral load. Our findings indicate that among the participants who completed reassessments, 44.8% gained or maintained employment, 86.2% achieved viral load suppression, 75.9% achieved undetectable at the final reassessment. There was no statistical difference between the mean of CD4 count and viral load reported at intake and those reported during the final reassessment. Over half of the participants experienced unstable employment during the program, indicating that significant barriers to employment remain for this population. Implications for rehabilitation counseling practice and research are discussed.

  • Informal Caregivers’ Well-Being at the Transition to Caregiving
    • Authors: Natalie A. Williams, Holly Hatton-Bowers, Kara L. Kohel, Shruti Pillai, Judith M. Burnfield
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this study was to describe the psychological and physical health needs of informal caregivers in a rehabilitation hospital and explore differences related to informal caregiver and care recipient characteristics. Readiness to engage in health promotion and perspectives on mindfulness meditation were assessed. Informal caregivers (N = 33) to patients receiving inpatient or outpatient treatment completed the Multidimensional Health Profile screening tools. Readiness to change was assessed using the readiness ruler approach. Almost half of participants (45.5%) had a chronic illness and 18.2% reported that it interferes with daily functioning. Low Positive Health Habits were reported by 43% of participants, and Negative Health Habits were reported by 25%. A subgroup (15%–20%) reported both physical and mental health concerns. A majority of participants indicated it was both very important for them to improve their physical and mental health and felt very confident they could do so. Receptivity to mindfulness meditation was high, with 72.7% reporting an interest. Comprehensive screening and counseling interventions to address the physical and mental health of informal caregivers in physical rehabilitation hospital settings are needed, and information gained from screening could be addressed in interventions delivered by systems-oriented rehabilitation counselors. A mindfulness meditation intervention may be a useful strategy for promoting well-being in this population.

  • Examining the Structure of the PERMA Theory of Well-Being in Veterans With
           Mental Illnesses
    • Authors: Emre Umucu
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Assessing and improving veterans’ well-being, especially those veterans who are at risk for or experiencing mental illnesses, has received national attention. We examined (a) the structural validity of the Positive emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment (PERMA) theory of well-being and (b) psychometric properties of the PERMA-Profiler in veterans with mental illnesses. The sample consisted of one-hundred and fifty-six veterans with mental illnesses. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and hierarchical CFA were conducted to test one-factor, five-factor, and a second-order PERMA model. Our findings indicated that re-specified second-order model was found to have best model fit indices. The subconstructs of the PERMA were correlated with resilience and functional limitations in theoretically expected direction. The PERMA-Profiler scale was found to have strong internal consistency and acceptable concurrent validity in a sample of veterans with mental illnesses. Rehabilitation counseling clinicians and researchers can use the PERMA-Profiler to screen the five pillars of well-being and overall well-being in veterans with mental illnesses through the lens of an empirical PERMA theory of well-being.

  • Employability With Mental Illness: The Perspectives of Employers and
           Mental Health Workers
    • Authors: Andrea Lettieri, Felipe Soto-Pérez, Manuel A. Franco-Martín, Francisco de Borja Jordán de Urríes, Kate R. Shiells, Emiliano Díez
      Abstract: Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Having prior contact with people with mental illness in the workplace can lead to an improvement in employers’ attitudes toward this group. However, there is currently a lack of instruments to measure attitudes toward the employability of people with mental illness. The overall aim of this study was to develop a Spanish scale of attitudes toward the employability of people with mental illness (CEPEM) and obtain preliminary data regarding its psychometric properties. Ninety-four items from three content domains were selected (attitudes, employability, and impact) and revised in an inter-rater agreement procedure in order to produce an initial scale. The scale was tested by employers and workers from the field of mental health. A reduced set of items was selected according to variability and homogeneity indexes. Additional analyses were conducted to explore the validity of the scale. Internal consistency was estimated for the full 33-item scale. Scale scores partially captured attitudinal differences between employers and workers. Finally, linear multiple regression analysis showed that the scale score, in combination with educational level, can help to predict employers’ intentions to hire people with mental illness. Limitations and future research directions are also addressed.
