Ecological Approaches to Organizational Consultation and Systems Change in Educational Settings
Meyers, Adena B.; Meyers, Joel; Graybill, Emily C.; Proctor, Sherrie L.; Huddleston, Lillie
Journal of Educational & Psychological Consultation, v22 n1-2 p106-124 2012
This article presents the conceptual foundations and specific features of an ecologically oriented model of school-based organizational consultation. We begin by providing an overview of ecological theory. This is followed by a brief description of a model of school-based organizational consultation with a special focus on the ecological elements of the approach. Next, several trends in educational service delivery (i.e., high-stakes educational assessment, Response to Intervention, Positive Behavior Supports, school climate, and social justice) that require substantial systemic changes are discussed. These trends highlight the need for effective ecological approaches to organizational consultation. We present recommendations regarding how an ecologically oriented model of school-based consultation might be used to facilitate systemic change efforts in relation to the educational trends discussed.
