McClung, Franklin B.; Stunden, Alastair A.
The focus of this study was to review and analyze current programs, practices, and procedures of child mental health consultation in order to generate an in-depth, empirically derived, conceptual framework to assist in the development of new programs of training and research in consultation. The design of the study included the collection of data from ten sites within the United States having consultation to agencies serving children as part of their program. This volume contains a review of the literature on mental health consultation, a description of the procedures and the conceptual model used in this study, a summary of the results of ten site visits, and an evaluative analysis of the procedures and philosophy of mental health consultation as currently practiced. Data collection was accomplished by means of interviews utilizing semistructured and open-ended questionnaires investigating the procedures and theories of consultation described in the literature on mental health consultation.
