Use of Consultation in Tennessee, Virginia, & Kentucky.
England, Connie T.
School counselors, psychologists, and administrators were surveyed in a three-state area to determine the relationship between the consultative/collaborative services within a comprehensive school counseling program. A description is provided of the three consultative/collaborative models (scientific/technological, human development, and social/political models of consultation for school counseling) currently used in the targeted schools systems. The survey attempted to measure the percentage of time counselors spend on several interventions as a means of determining the effectiveness of consultative/collaborative interventions on targeted schools. The responses did not reflect the utilization of a comprehensive plan prioritizing school counselor activities or the application of a theoretical-based consultation model. The results strongly suggest the need for further research into the organizational models of consultation and implementation of specific models of consultation services. (Contains 43 references.)
