Abstract

Discusses the use of brief psychotherapy principles in rehabilitation counseling. It is argued that rehabilitation counseling currently lacks a universal method of service delivery, due to the extreme diversity of consumers served, and the settings in which they are served. The basic principles that are common to all forms of brief therapy (specific problem focus, time limits, and task performance) offer a method of counseling that is applicable to all consumers in most settings. A review of the brief therapy literature is discussed with an emphasis on how this form of counseling is appropriate to assist individuals with disabilities progress in the areas of disability minimization, skill acquisition, environment manipulation, and the achievement of life goals.
