The methods presented by Don Dinkmeyer, Jr., Jon Carlson, and Rebecca Michel in Consultation are based on the assumption that problems in the home and classroom result not only from the direct actions of disruptive students, but also from the expectations of teachers and parents. This newly expanded fourth edition continues the tradition of encouraging change in supposed 'problem' children by helping authority figures recognize and alter the part they may play in exacerbating negative behavior. New additions include: two all new chapters on assessment and mindfulness, multicultural and diverse case examples, as well as access to online video sessions that accompany the text.

Consultation is an indirect model of delivering psychological services. Within this model, a consultant and caregiver (consultee) work together to optimize the functioning of a client in the caregiver's setting and to increase the caregiver's capacity to deal with similar situations in the future. In schools, for example, a psychologist may consult with a teacher about a student in the teacher's classroom. The practice of school consultation has burgeoned since its formal introduction into public education during the 1960s. Today, graduate training programs in various specialties of psychology and education require coursework in consultation, and many professionals in these areas spend some portion of their day engaged in consultation. Consultation can be a powerful tool in delivering psychological services in schools, but only when the consultant possesses a requisite level of skill and sophistication. In preparing this volume, we envi sioned its major purpose as reducing the level of naivete typically experienced by the beginning school consultant. Toward that end, we offer a systematic approach to school consultation that targets much of the information needed for one to consult in a competent manner. The reader should note that our use ofthe somewhat ambiguous term school consultant is intentional and recognizes that consultants working in schools today represent a variety of professional disciplines. The pri mary intended audience for this book, however, is clinical child psy chologists and school psychologists, although psychologists having other specialties are likely to find its content useful.

Proven practice tools and techniques for effective school consultations Consultation gives school counselors numerous advantages over individual or small group counseling. Chief among them is the far greater amount of children and adolescents one counselor can reach; by creating a more responsive school environment--consisting of teachers, parents, and others who can make decisions that children cannot--the counselor can positively affect all students who pass through that environment. However, making consultation effective requires a high level of knowledge and skill. School Counselor Consultation: Skills for Working Effectively with Parents, Teachers, and Other School Personnel represents the most comprehensive resource available for understanding the entire consultation process. Unlike other consultation books that focus on theory, School Counselor Consultation emphasizes proven practice techniques. These include: * What to say to parents and teachers about referring students to the school counselor * What to ask teachers to assist in formulating successful interventions * How to make the most of parent conferences * How to plan for, execute, and follow-up on consultation sessions * A five-step approach to conducting an individual consultation * How to plan and present psychoeducational workshops to parents and teachers This hands-on resource also features many forms and checklists--including consultation record forms, a sample agenda, surveys, and a crisis management plan--that you can use in practice. In addition, four appendices cover Adlerian theory, the American School Counselor Association and American Counseling Association Codes of Ethics, and how to best use this book to build consultation skills. Consultation offers one of the most time-effective and beneficial services a school counselor can provide. A valuable resource for both students and practicing counselors, School Counselor Consultation is the most complete and up-to-date guide to the challenging yet highly rewarding consultation process.

How can we make it easier for schools and families to work together on behalf of all students? It all begins by tapping into the different strengths educators and parents and caregivers can contribute to building a strong partnership. Partnering with Parents to Ask the Right Questions, by Luz Santana, Dan Rothstein, and Agnes Bain of the Right Question Institute, presents a deceptively simple strategy for how educators can build effective partnerships with parents—especially those who typically have not been actively involved in their children's schooling. It distills complex, important ideas on effective civic participation into an easy-to-learn process that teaches parents two fundamental skills they can use to support the education of their children, monitor their progress, and advocate for them: asking better questions and participating effectively in key decisions. Based on more than two decades of work and research in a wide range of low- and moderate-income communities, this book empowers overburdened and under-resourced educators and parents to work together and achieve their common goal of successful students. This indispensable guide includes case studies spanning K–12 classrooms, and it explores ways to assist struggling students, collaborate on IEPs, and communicate with families of English language learners. The accessible and easy-to-use format, field-tested advice, and vivid examples from schools that put the advice into practice make this a must-have for everyone from the classroom to the central office.
