While the family has traditionally been a secondary consideration in rehabilitation, this graduate text presents an innovative approach to rehabilitation counselling that focuses on the family as the centre of a person-cantered model, rather than as an adjunct to individual counselling. It advocates counselling in the context of community, requiring the recognition of social transaction as the primary focus of all interventions. The book provides the tools and knowledge base to effectively work with the family and within the community, delivering a new inclusive model of care and establishing best practices in research, practice, training, and management.

The text examines the rationale for embracing family values in rehabilitation counselling and provides a framework that redefines the relationship between counsellor and client in the context of family and community. It describes the community-based rehabilitation model in detail according to the International Classification of Function (ICF) and presents a series of illustrative disability profiles-distilled from systematic reviews of the literature--reflecting this framework. In each case, the impact upon family participation is illustrated and optimal service and support resources are identified. The role and function of the rehabilitation counsellor provides the integrative conclusion to each chapter.

The book also describes grassroots initiatives, the role of family in community-based rehabilitation in developing countries, family policy across rehabilitation systems, and best practices in research, training, and management. Each chapter includes an overview, learning objectives, study questions, and class activities. Appendices feature a catalogue of ICF-framed instruments that can be used in course activities and practice. Additionally, the text comes with access to an Instructor's Manual including case studies with discussion questions, classroom activities, and multiple-choice questions.
