Introduction: Balanced risk-taking(BRT) is an important factor which affects employment and job sustainability. Lack of BRT skills among people with physical disability could cause unemployment in this group of people. The purpose of this research was to identify the effectiveness of career counseling on balanced risk-taking of people with physical disability.
Methods: A randomized clinical trial was conducted among registered people with physical disability in Ra'ad charity in Karaj; to assess the effectiveness; nine-sessions of social work intervention on BRT conducted. Forty-six participants were consented and randomly assigned into case and control (twenty-three persons each) groups. BRT was assessed before, immediately after and two months after intervention using Iranians Entrepreneurial Characteristics Questionnaire. Mann-Whitney U test was used to evaluate the outcomes.
Results: The mean age of participants was thirty-three-year-old and most of them were male(sixty percent) and who had poliomyelitis. (5.52%)
Although the results did not show a significant difference between case and control groups in posttest, BRT was significantly higher for the case group in follow-up. (Sixty days after intervention)
Conclusions: Social work intervention on BRT was an effective method for increasing BRT among people with physical disability. Therefore implementing this intervention as a part of vocational rehabilitation services is suggested.
