Dougherty's PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSULTATION AND COLLABORATION IN SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY SETTINGS, 5e, 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. As students follow this book's structure, they learn to develop their own personal consultation model. The author provides a 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. Numerous new and proven case studies as well as PowerPoint slides bring concepts to life and help students learn how to deliver services most effectively. A new focus on prevention and more information on school-based consulting and working with non-mainstream families more thoroughly prepare students for professional success. This edition addresses some of the latest qualitative data gathering techniques and evaluation methods.
