This rapidly evolving professional landscape requires new and adapted skills and knowledge sets. The book ensures that it continues to provide a current, user-friendly, and comprehensive preparation for counselors and students preparing for the CRC examination. The contents are based on the most recent empirically derived rehabilitation counselor roles and functions studies that inform the test specifications for the CRC examination. The book corresponds to accreditation standards for master’s degree programs in rehabilitation counseling. It provides a new chapter on the CRC examination, including strategies for study and test taking. Each chapter of this guide provides a concise overview of the key concepts, summary tables of the key concepts, practice questions (with annotated answers), and links to web-based materials for further study and review. This edition proves highly valuable to rehabilitation counseling graduate students, working rehabilitation counselors seeking to obtain the CRC credential, and those in allied rehabilitation professions seeking to become a CRC through additional coursework.
