Psychoeducational Consultation: Definition--Functions--Preparation.
Kurpius, DeWayne J.; Brubaker, J. Craig
This monograph identifies and synthesizes some of the most important issues that can effect the performance of a psychoeducational consultant. It begins by describing the major modes of consultation in their situational contexts. Although the differences among the four major modes--provision, prescription, mediation, and collaboration--are evident, there appears to be less difference in the phases through which consultation processes are carried on, whatever the mode. In tracing these phases--phasing-in, planning, producing, and phasing-out--useful suggestions for successfully completing each stage are highlighted. Whenever different strategies are required for the "inside" consultant as opposed to the "outside" consultant, they are specified. The last half of the monograph, including the appendixes, focuses on some of the major factors influencing individual, group, organizational, and community change, and on the training of the psychoeducational consultant.
