This book is on consultation skills and evaluational activities that focus on the consultant and consultee to help provide effective program implementa-
tion. It includes sections that address interfacing with medical professionals and incorporating multiculturalism in consulting.
Program success often depends on consulting skills. No matter how excellent an intervention program has been designed, it is not likely to result in effective client behavior change if it is not implemented as specified. Effective consultation skills are critical to achieving implementation fidelity resulting in the success of most behavior interventions.
Through effective consultation, readers can help others learn to acquire new skills and behaviors that will assist them in moving toward achieving their goals and potential in working with clients, including children, students, patients, and employees.
