AbstractThe purpose of this project was to develop a guide to implementing and evaluating a vocational rehabilitation counselling program. It was designed to assist clients who have been injured as a result of motor vehicle accidents and who are having difficulty returning to active employment. -- The majority of injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents are known as whiplash associated disorders. The client focus of this vocational rehabilitation counselling program includes clients who have experienced difficulty adjusting to, and coping with, their injury and disability as a result of their whiplash associated disorder. -- This Vocational Rehabilitation Counselling Program follows five phases - pre- evaluation, evaluation, planning, treatment, and job placement. A guide for implementing these phases and a guide for evaluating the program has been developed. -- Various conclusions, based on developing a guide to implementing and evaluating a comprehensive vocational rehabilitation counselling program, have been discussed. In addition, recommendations for further research, based on the project limitations, have been proposed.
