Michael T. Hartley, PhD, CRC is an assistant professor and coordinator of the rehabilitation and mental health specialization in the Counseling Program, Department of Disability and Psychoeducational Studies at the University of Arizona. His scholarly interests lie in the professionalization of rehabilitation counseling, including the application of ethical principles. Much of his work has targeted distributive justice issues and therefore his scholarship on ethical obligations has focused on the importance of promoting resilience and of advocating against ableism or the preference for able-bodiedness. Dr. Hartley has collaborated on research grants and was the primary investigator on recent grant-funded research projects focused on developing innovative interventions to support resilience among military veterans with spinal cord injuries. He has also worked to support youth with disabilities during the school-to-work transition to increase resilience and decrease dropout. In the area of advocacy, he has been involved in leadership and research collaborations with Centers of Independent Living (CILs) to teach and empower individuals with disabilities to advocate for themselves. Rooted in the concept of self-advocacy, his research on advocacy has emphasized the use of digital technology as a way for individuals who have experienced marginalization to reclaim power and control over their environments. Finally, his research on salient ethical issues in contemporary rehabilitation counseling practice were used to guide recent revisions to the 2016 Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor (CRCC) Code of Ethics, a taskforce he served on. Dr. Hartley is knowledgeable about the profession and professional practice of rehabilitation counseling, and is committed to defining and better preparing rehabilitation counselors to work ethically and effectively with persons with disabilities.
