Counselor as Consultant is a core text for a required course in counselor education, mental health and psychological counseling. This course teaches the theories, models, and skills of consulting for counselors in training as well as the application across various settings. Professional counselors often get hired to consult in various settings such as schools, organizations, career centers, etc. This book helps counselors in training learn essential skills for consultation positions for those who opt not to go into private practice. It helps students understand the process and stages of consultation as well as some key skills such as writing proposals, conducting workshops, drafting contracts, fees, and reporting.
This text helps students to develop their own style of consultation via strengthening their own identity development. By encouraging them to develop a pattern of reflection and intentionality which requires them to examine their own values as part of the process, it in turn helps them understand common consultant characteristics, review essential skills, and describe theories and models of practice. Its unique focus on intentionality and reflection enables students to develop a strong sense of counselor identity, which will benefit them as consultants. The book also contains a variety of teaching tools that helps students proceduralize knowledge via practice accompanied by feedback, case illustrations, reflective practice and counselor thinking boxes and is closely aligned to the new CACREP standards.
