Kurpius, DeWayne J., Ed.; Brown, Duane, Ed.
This handbook is one of four handbooks developed for preservice and inservice counselor preparation and professional development.

"Introduction to Consultation: An Intervention for Advocacy and Outreach" (DeWayne Kurpius and Joyce Lewis) defines advocacy and outreach, looks at the role of the consultant as advocate, and considers issues of consultation. "Empowerment through Advocacy" (Duane Brown) defines advocacy, lists the qualities of an advocate, considers skills and strategies of advocacy, describes the process of advocacy, and discusses ethics and advocacy and some problems in advocacy."Consultative Advocacy Differentiated from Legal Advocacy" (Theodore Remley, Jr.) looks at attorneys as advocates and at consultants as advocates and then goes on to consider appropriate advocacy roles for consultants. "Consultation as Advocacy and Outreach in Community Mental Health Settings: Theory to Practice" (Gordon Gibson) examines the development of theory in consultation and at consultation interventions as advocacy and outreach. Case applications are provided for consultation as advocacy and as outreach. "Advocacy and Outreach: Applications to College/University Counseling Centers" (David Drum and Luis Valdes) looks at levels of need and presents an outreach model.
