With Dougherty’s PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSULTATION AND COLLABORATION IN SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY SETTINGS, 6th Edition, you will see how human service professionals help others work more effectively to fulfill their work-related or caretaking responsibilities to individuals, groups, organizations, and communities. This practical book uses a proven generic model for application, surveys various approaches to consultation, examines the organizational context of consultation, and reviews the numerous ethical and professional challenges that today’s consultants face. As you work through the book, you can develop or refine your own personal model of consultation. Case studies bring concepts to life and help you learn how to deliver services most effectively. This edition includes new content aligned with CACREP and other standards, an increased focus on school-based consultation, new material on cultural diversity, advocacy, social justice, prevention, systems theory, and ecological variables as they affect consultation and collaboration in counseling and psychology, and much more to help you prepare for professional success.
