One really important thing I missed.  Try to stay away from getting actual 
emotional counsling from your rehab counsler.  If you have medicaid or 
medicare or some other type ofinsurance try to get this emotional counsling 
from a psychologist or certified social worker.  The psychologist or social 
worker can also write up a letter to the rehab counsler that says that your 
emotionally and mentally capable of taking one class but that any more 
classes than this would put to much pressure on you.
