In this application-oriented book, William A. Wallace and Donald L. Hall help students learn how to do consultation by breaking down the theories and processes of psychological consultation into specific skills and applications. The focus of the book is more on the practical than other books for the course; for example, the book offers useful strategies for dealing with resistance, the most consistent problem in consultation. And, flexible and alternate views of consultation are provided, rather than absolute instructions or descriptions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Overall, I do believe this book could be the finest option available for the consultation course. Most consultation texts are very dry, overly academic, or focus only on the school setting."
The first section of this practically-oriented text examines stages of consultation, models and approaches, measuring efficiency, and resistance to the consultation process. The second part covers consultation settings including education, child development, health care, and business and industry. The third part covers special applications and ethical and legal dilemmas while the final section addresses qualities of the successful consultant and trends in psychological consultation.
