Responding to Community Needs Utilizing a Consultative Approach
Gutow, Mindy R.; Rynkewitz, Stefanie; Reicher, Shira R.
Canadian Journal of School Psychology, v24 n3 p222-236 2009
The role of the school psychologist has evolved from serving as a gatekeeper for special education eligibility to that of a change agent within the school. This shift in professional focus positions school psychologists with the capacity to make an impact beyond the school setting. This article provides an example of how the consultative skills that school psychologists utilize daily within schools, may be applied to the community setting. A description of the collaborative consultation process will be presented as it was applied to a community agency working with Latino child witnesses of domestic violence. Modifications to the model are also discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
