The Journal of Forensic Vocational Analysis, the official, peer-reviewed journal of the American Board of Vocational Experts, represents the best single source for up-to-date information on our profession. The field of vocational analysis and disability determination has been growing tremendously over the last few years. Whereas many of our roots exist in the delivery of vocational rehabilitation services, the real need in our industry as of late has been in determination of disability and the value of labor force participation. Whether it is in administrative hearings for social security, workers’ compensation, disability pension funds, or in civil litigation proceedings, the use and appreciation of the role of Vocational experts has been increasing.
The editors trust that all of these articles in the Journal of Forensic Vocational Analysis will be not only informative from a professional standpoint, but also helpful in terms of your everyday practice.
