Abstract and Keywords
Problem solving consultation has been identified as a practice guideline in the delivery of evidence-based interventions (EBIs). This mandate is likely to advance the current initiatives of implementing EBIs and incorporating multi-tiered prevention models within the school setting. The purpose of this chapter is to review the most prominent models of consultation (mental health, behavioral, organizational development, instructional, and technology training) and discuss the associated features of each model. While differences exist among the models, all involve problem solving expertise of the consultant (conceptualized as an individual or team) within the context of a triadic relationship. The remainder of the chapter is devoted to the concept of problem solving consultation (PSC), which is a broad term that incorporates and draws on the aforementioned models. Finally, we offer some recommendations for the professional practice of PSC within the context of evidence-based practice.
