Consultation Across Cultural Contexts addresses the challenges that school psychologists face when working in unfamiliar settings and diverse cultural contexts. Establishing first the necessity of understanding and respecting these contexts, this book provides both theoretical background knowledge and a wealth of technical and practical information, animated by first-hand accounts. Divided into sections that touch upon topics such as difficult teachers and the role of poverty, race, and class, the selections include examples from diverse school ecologies, schools in various states of transition, resource challenged schools, and more.
