Summary

In this new text, traditional models of consulting are presented, critically examined, and reworked to incorporate issues of race and gender into their respective theoretical principles.

This text presents a perspective that is relevant to contemporary professional consultants. It engages readers on deep, personal, and professional levels while filling critical holes in the preparation of mental health professionals to conduct professional consultation. For example, the book discusses in detail the psychological contract, the most critical element determining the success of consultants' work. Another unique aspect of this text is the attention given to the fundamental contexts of consultation and intervening. In staying true to the emphasis in the helping professions on relationships, this text places strong emphasis on identifying and analyzing the numerous and complex relationships that emerge in consultation theory and real-world consultation practice.

Features

  • Thoughtfully integrates issues of race and gender throughout the text (most consultants and consultees in the helping professions are women, and the number of racioethnic consultees and clients is on a dramatic rise).
  • Includes a unique systematic comparison of counseling and consultation (Ch. 2).
  • Includes an examination of the philosophical contexts of consultation and intervening, which receives very little coverage in other consultation texts.
  • Examines the Psychological Contract (Chs. 5 & 6).
  • Includes an in-depth discussion of workshops as consultations (Ch. 14).
  • Seven case studies illuminate various consultation approaches.
