Summary "This bulletin was written primarily for vocational rehabilitation counselors. It is expected that it will assist them in planning better rehabilitation programs. The need for awareness of the psychological adjustment mechanisms of the physically disabled is not confined to the counselor, however, and it is hoped that physicians, social workers, psychologists, and placement specialists may profit from the contents of this publication. The cooperation and coordination of the various specialties is the most important element today in providing rehabilitation services for the disabled whereby they may take their rightful place as contributing members of society. The interest and cooperation of the authors and the organizations many of them represent is a practical demonstration of the vital nature of the material presented herein. We are aware of the fact that successful rehabilitation programs depend on integrated community activity and in a sense this bulletin epitomizes that approach"--Preface.
