Post Graduate Diploma in Rehabilitation Psychology (PGDRP)


Post Graduate Diploma in Rehabilitation Psychology or PGDRP is a hands-on training course approved by RCI with the aim to train candidates in basic knowledge and skills necessary for rehabilitation counseling practice. The course includes core counseling topics including theories of counseling and rehabilitation-specific coursework (e.g. assessment of persons with physical/sensory/developmental/ cognitive disability).

This course aims to train rehabilitation counselors who promote understanding of the situations and needs of a person with disabilities.
