Social Validation: A Unifying Concept for School-Based Consultation Research and Practice.
Gresham, Frank M.; Lopez, Maria F.
School Psychology Quarterly, v11 n3 p204-27 Fall 1996
Argues for a unifying concept for consultation research and practice based on the principle of social validity, a principle which includes the evaluation of the social importance of the effects produced by intervention procedures. Suggests that relying exclusively on consultees to socially validate goals, procedures, and outcomes is misguided. (75 references) (RJM)
