Title A Case for Hope
Summary This research summary describes findings from a study on hope-focused rehabilitation. People both with and without disabilities are more likely to achieve their goals when they have hope. Often thought of as an intangible concept, this study shows how hope is in fact measurable, predictive, and teachable. Snyder’s Trait Hope Scale is a useful tool for vocational rehabilitation professionals to measure and understand levels of hope.
