about

This innovative volume presents an integrated model of school consultation that combines the theoretically distinct approaches of mental health and behavioral consultation with the empirically validated principles of behavioral analysis, social influence, and social support. This model views the practice of school consultation as the accomplishment of three interrelated tasks: problem solving, social influence, and professional support and development. Ideal for the beginning consultant, the text features a set of three transcribed interviews with a detailed analysis of the three tasks and a tabular comparison of the key dimensions of mental health consultation and mental health collaboration.

From Our Editors

This integrative volume offers a systematic approach to school consultation unlike those previously published. Erchul and Martens combine the most useful and empirically validated principles from mental health and behavioral consultation with practices shown to be effective in contemporary consultation research (i.e., behavior analysis, social influence, and social support). In so doing, the authors view the practice of school consultation as the accomplishment of three interrelated tasks: problem solving, social influence, and professional support and development. School Consultation describes the fundamentals of practice and fully explores processes and potential outcomes. Special attention is paid to the needs of first-time consultants, who are given advice on how to select school-based interventions and to assess their effectiveness in terms of treatment outcome, integrity, and social validity. The authors show that the school is a large organization providing a range of services, and that the delivery of these services is influenced at once by legislation, th

Editorial Reviews

`Although this appears to be a small book, Erchul and Martens have packed it with information...The authors do a thorough job of addressing all known (as established by research) reasons that consultation may fail...If you are currently providing consultation services to the school, then this is a must read book.'
