In this practical text, readers "watch" experienced and effective psychologists, counselors and other human service professionals practice consultation and collaboration. By reading and responding to nine cases, they will be able to bridge the gap between theory and practice, between knowing what consultation is and knowing how to consult. Readers will also gain practice in making their own decisions about how they would handle these same cases, and can apply what they have learned to a series of nine practice cases. By the time they finish the book, readers will have begun to forge their own personalized approach to consultation.
