(5 credits)

What is the role of consultation in the delivery of psychological services and how does it differ from therapy or counseling? Students in this course have the opportunity to answer such questions as they examine the history, theory, process, and methods in the field of psychological consultation. They explore the qualifications and techniques required of psychologists who consult in various settings, including the courtroom; business and industry; and educational, mental health, and medical situations. Students apply concepts and theories learned in the course to a consultation action plan based on personal experience or one anticipated in a future professional situation. Through this project, students consider multiple factors, such as setting, clients, data collection, professional challenges, multicultural considerations, and ethical issues.
