Overview

Psychological Consultation and Collaboration: Introduction to Theory and Practiceprovides an overview of both the theory and practice of consultation and collaboration along with a summary of the empirical support, multicultural strengths, and limitations for each approach. Coverage includes mental health consultation, behavioral consultation, organizational development consultation, and the processes in consultation and collaboration–including the characteristics of the people who engage in them, evaluation of the outcomes of the two processes, and ethical guidelines for consultants and collaborators. Two chapters deal with the specifics of consulting with teachers and parents, with emphasis on multiple relationships among parents, schools, and communities. The 7th edition contains many cutting edge updates, including more information about empirically-based interventions; alternative views of the consulting relationship; school, family and community interventions; and recent research findings and updated policy statements. A new chapter examines Solution Focused Consultee Centered Consultation, an approach rooted in constructiveness theory that uses the consultee’s strengths to build interventions.

Incl. Adlerian consultation, organization change & consultation, skills/characteristics of consultants etc.
