A Conceptual Model for Home-School Consultation.
Brown, Joe H.
Because of the need for trained personnel to help people cope with their problems, the focus must shift from training persons who give direct services to training persons who function as consultants. The consultant works with a consultee (who is often a parent or a teacher) to help a third party (who is often a client). The author presents a conceptual mode to describe the functions of a consultant. The first stage involves the request for consultation during which the consultant acquires important information regarding the nature of a client's problems, environments and abilities. The second stage identifies the problem behavior, and observes or assesses client behavior. Factors which are maintaining the client's undesirable behavior are identified to determine whether the client requires referral. If not, consultant and consultee agree on the desired behavioral changes to be initiated. If the consultant judges that the consultee is capable of helping the client change his behavior, then he trains the consultee to implement specific recommendations to initiate positive change in the client. Finally, an evaluation of the effectiveness of the procedure is made. (SE)
