Evaluating Mental Health Consultation: Problems in Research Appraisal.
Smith, Philip A.
Most programs of mental health consultation are offered without systematic plans for follow up evaluation. Controlled experimental procedures for assessing consultation are difficult to apply in most field settings, and alternate approaches to evaluation are needed. Eight problems which are commonly encountered when undertaking objective study of the consultation process are described, and the critical incident technique is suggested as a useful post hoc assessment tool in situations where experimental controls are lacking.
