Work is one of life’s most organizing principles. Work has instrumental value. It provides one with a sense of well being and a sense of accomplishment depending on how one views one’s job as making even a small contribution to society.

Individuals who do not work are often involved in litigation, such as personal injuries, work-related issues (industrial accidents), motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, unfair employment practices, and divorce matters. These issues are very familiar to vocational experts.

This handbook will deal with the following topics: understanding the meaning of work, education and training, referral process, review of records, the interview, the test battery, analysis of the data, the report, preparation for testifying, and credentials and ethics.
