This monograph includes eight articles that examine self-employment as a goal for vocational rehabilitation closure for rural disabled people. Articles cover the changing labor market and increasing opportunities for self-employment; an account of how home-based employment allowed a disabled worker to become self-sufficient; policies and practices of state vocational rehabilitation agencies toward self-employment; studies of self-employment closures in rural and urban areas; research on the attitudes of vocational rehabilitation counselors toward self-employment; a proposed economic partnership in which the community rehabilitation facility operates as a small business incubator; and examples of successful vocational rehabilitation programs geared toward self-employment. Following an introduction by Kay Schriner, articles are: (1) "Beyond Job Placement: The Self-Employment Boom" (Allan Forrester); (2) "Healing Art: Etching a New Life with State's Help" (John Stromnes); (3) "Self-Employment as a Vocational Rehabilitation Closure: An Examination of State Policies" (Nancy L. Arnold, Tom Seekins); (4) "Self-Employment as a Vocational Rehabilitation Employment Outcome in Rural and Urban Areas" (Nancy L. Arnold, Tom Seekins, Craig Ravesloot); (5) "Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors' Attitudes toward Self-Employment: Attitudes and Their Effects on the Use of Self-Employment as an Employment Option" (Craig Ravesloot, Tom Seekins); (6) "Economic Development and Rural Vocational Rehabilitation: Speculation About a Model for Community Rehabilitation Facilities" (Tom Seekins); (7) "Creative Options for Rural Employment: A Beginning" (Ann Temkin); and (8) "The Wisconsin Business Development Program: A Partnership Between the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Department of Development" (Dale Verstegen, Nancy L. Arnold). The last section, "Resources: People and Agencies Working in the Area of Self-Employment for People with Disabilities," lists individuals who work in the area of self-employment and the types of local, regional, and state organizations that may assist people interested in starting their own business.
