"Consultation is a practice that plays an essential role in professional or health service psychology (HSP), particularly in integrated care and interprofessional collaboration and in the evolving practice environments within the public and private sectors of society. This book presents a comprehensive and competency-based approach to the practice of consultation. It provides a foundation for effective practice, emphasizing ethics, culture, and interprofessional practice in multiple consultation settings. Building on this foundation, the chapters focus on a variety of consultation settings, including medical, forensic, school, corporate, professional leadership, family, religious, police, and military contexts. The book will prepare graduate students, interns, postdoctoral fellows, and practicing psychologists to effectively and competently offer consultation in traditional and emerging areas of professional practice. It consists of two major parts: Foundations of Consultation Practice and Exemplars and Approaches, and it closes with a chapter discussing the future of consultation. The chapters in the Foundations section provide an overview of the process of consultation. Part II provides examples of consultation practice that span a range of contexts, such as medical, educational, and religious settings; forensics; custody evaluations; law enforcement; military; and the corporate environment. For the psychologist who already is engaged in consultation or is considering expanding practice opportunities, and for doctoral students, interns, or fellows who are embarking on their careers, this book provides a foundation for competency-based practice and offers illustrations of core principles and practices for consultation success."--Preface.
