Question #2: Is Collaborative Consultation Non-Directive?
Erchul, William P.
This paper reviews the empirical research on the nature of the consultant-consultee relationship within school based consultation programs. It finds that the fundamental assumption of collaborative consultation, that both consultant and consultee are equal partners, is rarely the case. Specifically, it finds that the effective consultant controls the interview direction, with the consultee tending to follow the consultant's conversational lead. In situations where the consultee attempts to control the direction of the interview, negative outcomes usually result. (Contains 14 references.) (DB)
