Therapists frequently work with the wrong person in treatment and as a result they are unlikely to be helpful. Research supports that working with the person that brings the problem to you (ie parent or teacher) and not the identified patient (child or student). By working around the child or adolescent’s problem and focusing on how they are a problem for the teacher or parent will yield positive gains. This workshop will show how to use the consultation process to help all parties involved. DVD examples of actual sessions will be used to highlight the process and demonstrate how short-term is possible with this approach.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Understand the seven-step process of individual consultation.
  2. Able to describe the rationale for working with a consultation approach.
