About Rehabilitation Psychology

Rehabilitation Psychology is a specialty of psychology that serves individuals with disabilities as they adjust, adapt, and progress toward healthy and satisfying lifestyles. Psychologists working in rehabilitation use education, remediation, counseling, and advocacy to minimize effects of impairments due to disabling medical conditions and promote wellness through optimal psychological, and social functioning.

Continuing advances in medical science have increased survival following injury and illness; however, these conditions often cause physical and cognitive impairments. Disability results when impairments limit everyday activities. Rehabilitation seeks to minimize effects of impairments and maximize abilities, allowing independent and productive lifestyles.

Rehabilitation is a complex effort, involving physicians, psychologists, nurses, therapists and vocational and educational specialists. It is a team effort, and persons with disabilities and their families are the most important members.

Board Certification in Rehabilitation Psychology is earned from the American Board of Rehabilitation Psychology, a part of the American Board of Professional Psychology. The primary Professional Association in Rehabilitation Psychology is the American Psychological Association’s Division of Rehabilitation Psychology.

Our Approach

Our Approach

The psychological effects of injury and illness must be understood by how they the whole person, including physical and medical factors, the demands of one’s life situation, changes in functional abilities and a person’s reaction to these changes.

Because every person is unique, it is essential to begin each treatment program with a thorough evaluation of personal goals, the specific situation and an individual's strengths and weaknesses. The well-being of the individual is our first concern. The person with a disability and their family will direct care, and will always be treated with dignity and respect.

The staff in the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology takes great care to assure that our efforts account for:

  • Client and family goals
  • Individual capabilities
  • Available resources and opportunities

Assistance is always provided in accordance with a detailed treatment plan developed with the client and endorsed by collaborating professionals and organizations.

Our Pledge

In serving persons with disabilities and their families, the faculty and staff of the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology make the following commitments:

  • To provide a thorough assessment of individual strengths and weaknesses
  • To provide the most complete and accurate information available regarding the effects of illness or injury and prognosis for recovery
  • To provide services according to a comprehensive rehabilitation plan developed mutually with the client
  • To make every possible effort to improve quality of life, independence and freedom of choice for the clients we serve
