Perspectives on Rehab Legislation - REHB5079

Year - 2018

Students examine the spectrum of legislation that shapes rehabilitation counselling practice in Australia. The intregral relationship between service provision, policy and law become the subject of discourse across the domains of civic life including work, education, health, social engagement, and civil rights. The role of rehabilitation counselling is also explored from an internal perspective, looking at the relationships and challengse between accrediting bodies, professional education, research, and practice in Australia. Ethical codes and legal sanctions that proscribe professional practice provide the context for a critique of the emerging professional identity of rehabilitation counselling and its relationship with policy on the global scale.
