Provide a deeper understanding of resilience and its relevance to persons with disabilities, with a focus on developing and incorporating resilience-based skills throughout the rehabilitation counseling process to maximize client outcomes.
Learning to cope with disability-related experiences is fundamental to being resilient. Throughout this course, you will apply your learning of resilience-based skills and factors to case scenarios where you will consider how you would encourage people with disabilities to be active participants in the cultivation of their resilience and in living a resilient-oriented lifestyle. A key component of this process is your review and examination of your own resilience skills and tendencies. By understanding your own resilience processes, you can more effectively model resilience with the people you serve.
Areas of focus include:
- What resilience means, how it benefits people and the lives they seek, and how interpretations may differ from person to person;
- Barriers that may inhibit one's ability to be resilient, pursue resilience, or create the life that one seeks;
- Building resilience among persons with disabilities through the situations they encounter;
- Applying resilience-based skills and approaches to examine and evaluate desired impacts; and
- Strategies and plans that effectively incorporate resilience-based skills throughout the rehabilitation counseling process.
At the conclusion of this course, you will develop a working plan as a starting point for introducing and exploring resilience throughout the rehabilitation counseling process.
