Children with serious emotional and behavioral problems often present challenges that far exceed what seems to be manageable. Despite the best intentions and efforts, youth move through multiple failed services because of the lack of progress, the "failure to adjust," and a presumed need for a higher level of care. Renewing Our Commitment to Kids (ROCK) is a process of intense teamwork that enlists experienced consultants in the search for solutions for workers and families who are dealing with very challenging youth. This article uses a case example to illustrate a collaborative consultation model that brought together stakeholders and consultants to renew commitment to youth and families and develop plans for positive youth outcomes. These consultants are not experts per se, but experienced teachers, counselors, mentors, and leaders. They are able to articulate principles, practice wisdom, and effective interventions. The success of this model relies on the clinical supervisor who stimulates learning and growth in order to promote positive development in both staff and youth.
