Fear, Hopelessness and VR
The best article we have read on the Individual Plan for Employment was written by Timothy Hamre. He gives four reasons that clients in VR might have no goals.
1. They have no idea what they want to do.
WHAT TO DO: Hamre suggests a great solution. Include figuring out what they want to do as a goal on the IPE. Discuss the person's strengths and weaknesses as part of your vocational counseling. Have them read books from the library or search the Internet on different jobs. Have a list of people who would be willing to discuss their job on the phone or in person, letting the person know what it is they do all day.
