Overview

Dougherty's PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSULTATION AND COLLABORATION IN SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY SETTINGS, 6th Edition, clearly demonstrates how human service professionals help others work more effectively to fulfill their work-related or caretaking responsibilities to individuals, groups, organizations, and communities. The book is structured to aid students in developing their own personal consultation model as they work through the book. The author provides a culturally sensitive generic application model that students can use to survey various approaches to consultation, examine the organizational context of consultation, and review the numerous ethical and professional challenges that consultants face as they deliver their services. New case studies bring concepts to life and help students learn how to deliver services most effectively. Updated throughout, 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. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.
