CLI CN900 - Consultation

Credits: 2

As consultants, clinical psychologists offer services to diverse clients and stakeholders and provide ethical, principled, ecologically aware, and culturally responsive advice, coaching, and facilitation of systems change. Consultation practices are informed by an understanding of individual and group behavior and cognitive and behavioral intervention skills. This course will explore models of consultation and the range of consultation roles played by clinical psychologists in a variety of settings. The course will provide hands-on practice experiences preparing consultation proposals and reports, working individually and as a member of a consultation team, and demonstrating knowledge and respect for the roles and perspectives of other professions. The course will also offer guidance and resources addressing the “nuts and bolts” of consultation work, including such activities as searching and networking for opportunities, marketing, budgeting, contracting, and devising work plans.
