Full course description
This session explores the ethical application of informed choice from the perspective of five basic literacies for decision making. Literacy can be defined as the ability to identify, locate, understand, interpret, create, communicate and differentiate alternatives based on reasoning and logic. The five literacies that VR counselors can help develop throughout the counseling relationship are self-literacy, employment-literacy, rehabilitation-literacy, alternatives-literacy, and resource-literacy. Informed choices require literacy at all five levels. This session explores how VR Counselors can improve the informed choice process by paying attention to the five literacies.
