    For many people, work is a defining aspect of their life. Think how often the question is asked, “what do you do?” The usual answer involves some explanation about the career field or job the person is involved with as opposed to preoccupations or hobbies. Consequently, any people find their meaning and identity is intricately woven into their occupation. Work not only impacts the individual, it can have a reciprocal impact on the individual’s economic, cultural, social, and political situations For many people, work is a defining aspect of their life. Think how often the question is asked, “what do you do?” The usual answer involves some explanation about the career field or job the person is involved with as opposed to preoccupations or hobbies. Consequently, any people find their meaning and identity is intricately woven into their occupation. Work not only impacts the individual, it can have a reciprocal impact on the individual’s economic, cultural, social, and political situations and belief structure. Nevertheless, when disability becomes part of the individual’s lived experience, the relationship between work and the individual’s purpose in life may be impacted. As a result, ancillary relationships with other people and the lived environment can become substantially altered. Therefore, professionals in the rehabilitation field, particularly the rehabilitation counselor, must be able to understand and correctly interpret the complex effects that disability presents to the very nature of occupation. Although there are several independent texts that can assist the rehabilitation professional in understanding the barriers posed by both work and disability considerations, this textbook summarizes and defines the specific tools that can enhance the accomplishment of that goal. Throughout the 13 chapters of this text, coverage is provided for everything from the basic concepts of disability through the definition and explanation of supported employment. Along the way, overviews of the status of employment (up until 2010), legislation impacting people with disabilities (PWDs), research on the disability population, and the implications of various theories of career development are explored. Moreover, considerations are made for working with diverse and historically marginalized populations. Ultimately, this book provides a straightforward understanding of the complex relationship between disability and work. A good text to use in exploring additional reading in the pursuit of enhancing employment outcomes for PWDs. Happy Reading!
