Mental Health Consultation to the Schools: Directions for the Future.
These are the speeches and the results of the Conference on School Consultation. The conference had four primary purposes: (1) provide an opportunity for mental health professionals to focus on an important area of services which has previously been overlooked by most CMHC's; (2) provide the opportunity for mutual discussion and development of new and creative ideas related to mental health consultation in the schools, including ideas leading to the development of new and important research; (3) promulgate useful techniques or approaches and general knowledge about how successful school consultation programs operate; and (4) create an interest among mental health professionals about the effective uses of consultation in the schools, leading to the development of new programs at CMHC's throughout the country.
