Perceptual Mapping Software as a Tool for Facilitating School-Based Consultation
Rush, S. Craig; Kalish, Ashley; Wheeler, Joanna
Journal of Educational & Psychological Consultation, v23 n3 p217-227 2013
Perceptual mapping is a systematic method for collecting, analyzing, and presenting group perceptions that is potentially useful in consultation. With input and feedback from a consultee group, perceptual mapping allows the consultant to capture the group's collective perceptions and display them as an organized image that may foster meaningful understanding of their shared beliefs and serve as a stimulus for discussion and problem solving. Perceptual mapping can give school-based consultants an additional means to bring ideas "to the table" that consultees can clearly conceptualize as originating with them as opposed to the notions of the consultant. The authors illustrate the potential use of and offer support for perceptual mapping as a tool for consultation in schools.
