I am currently working towards attaining my Masters degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy; however, I was thinking that I may wish to get an additional Master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. I was wondering if anyone could help me by telling me what a Rehabilitation Counselor does, what type of settings they predominantly work in, and what additional certifications can help me with this dream.
Any information can and will help!
And what is the difference between an occupational therapist and a rehabilitation counselor?
Thank you for your help in advance!
I work in the field of developmental disabilities, and I love my job, but it just doesn't pay enough to support my family. I am looking into getting my Masters to be an occupational therapist or rehabilitation counselor, but I want to really understand what these jobs entail in the day-to-day. I have a better grasp on occupational therapy than rehab counseling. Can anyone help me?
Is a doctorate degree required to work as a school psychologist or as a rehabilitation counselor? What are the advantages of obtaining a PHD vs. just a Master's?
I have had a history of job jumping. I have never been employed longer than 8 mths. Now I have been out of work for 3 years because of my trying to get well due to my major depression. I have a Vocational rehabilitation counselor and a employment specialist. But no one wants to look any further than my resume. I have experience in material handling(forklift certified). History of shipping/receiving and distribution 5 years worth. I have a family to take care of and I am desperate to fix this. But how and who?
I interviewed for a rehabilitation counselor position with the Department of Corrections a few weeks ago. I received a call about two days ago from a lady requesting my W-2 forms for a background investigation that she was conducting on me. Does that mean that this company is looking at me to hire or could they be looking at me and some other people too. I don't know what to think at this point. I want to know if I have the job though.
I want to become a rehabilitation counselor, (preferably a drug rehabilitation counselor) but I'm not sure how I need to start. I thinking I need a degree in Psychology, but what type of degree? and also I heard you need to check about your states Licensing laws, and I'm not sure how I would even start to do that (I live in Fl), can anyone help?
I have a college degree with a background in journalism, nonprofit advocacy work and customer service. I have been downsized from nonprofit in 2005 and was ill-matched for a payroll position in a corporate environment that overstressed me, so I resigned for my health. I am not ill, very independent and have a lot of qualifications, but realize that I may have to resort to entry level work to get my foot in the door. I'm very willing to do that. I've consulted professionals to polish my resume, have taken continuing education classes in Spanish and grant writing, and seek the consultation of rehabilitation services counselors, career counselors and staffing agencies. Still, I'm having trouble finding work beyond part-time at the local movie theater. I really want to keep my experience professional and my salary gainful beyond minimum wage. I've posted my resume on several job boards and continue to look every few days, if not daily, for work. What now?

I'm really into psychology and I've been trying to google how much a counselor makes a year. I know there are a bunch of different counselors and I kind of want to be either a family counselor, a counselor at a hospital, or maybe one at a rehab place. I just want to more, thank-you in advance!
I want to work with children, and I really want to know which jobs involve interacting with kids. Please help me. I have a teacher and a pediatrician so far. Help. Please!
Or should I get a doctorrete...I'm not really sure what I should do in that field I'm a sophomore in highschool and our counselor just goes around telling kids how their too poor for college.
I've always wanted a job as an animal caretaker/trainer (NOT a vet) such as those seen on shows like "Growing Up" on Animal Planet. However, I've had a hard time finding out any information about this job, such as the official job title, job requirements, average pay, etc. If there is any information people have from experience, or if anyone knows any resources for additional information it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! =)
I want to get back to college and get my master degree In counseling and psychotherapy ,does anybody know how the job market is and what is the salary range?
What are the different areas of psychology and what different jobs can you have with a degree in psychology?
Hello, I am about to finish my BA in Sociology and a minor in Spanish and I have learned about many people wronged in our society and even though it may be cheesy I want to help people in the world in a way that will really change society. I know Lawyers have more power however, I am worried about corruption. Mostly, I really want to help make some legal changes to help people who are discriminated against and give them good legal advice and help these groups elevate themselves socially. Which type of lawyer does this kind of work? It doesn't matter if it is highly compensated as long as it makes a good change. Rehab counselor sounds like a chill job that will also help many people who need to find work right now and are struggling with unemployment. Which career will make the biggest positive change in people's lives?
I'm thinking of majoring in Sociology, just a Bachelor Degree. What kind of job can you get with this degree? Be specific please. Is it difficult to find a job in this field? What kind of pay if you're living in Michigan? Thank you so much for all the information you can share and please share your experience too. Thank you!
It seems like an interesting field but what type of job could one get with a Bachelors alone?
I mean what exactly do they do? I'm exploring my options for graduate programs. Originally I wanted to be a teacher, but this sounds interesting too.
I want to do something related to psychiatry (im most interested in gender identity and sexuality), but I'm not sure what exactly I'd need to do. I've heard some say that you need a full phD and others that say all you need is a masters.
Does anyone know on average how many years of schooling are needed become a mental health counselor?
I will graduate soon with a BS in Psychology. What is a job that I can get and what will the pay be? I plan on going to law school but I will have one year between undergrad and law school in which I will need a job.
Also, I have a DUI from my teenage years, can I still find a job? I am really depressed about my DUI.
Tell me what kinds of jobs I can get.
