Grounded in Adlerian Psychology, the methods presented by Don Dinkmeyer, Jr. and Jon Carlson in Consultation are based upon the assumption that problems in the home and the classroom result not only from the direct actions of disruptive students, but also from the expectations of teachers and parents. This text shows how counselors can encourage change in these supposed 'problem' children by helping authority figures recognize and alter the part they may be playing in exacerbating the negative actions of the student. Also included is a supplementary DVD depicting actual individual and group interviews with teachers and parents.


'Dinkmeyer and Carlson bring together over 85 years of experience to present a process that has proven effective in schools across the nation and internationally. Anyone who consults with parents or teachers will benefit from this book. It should be mandatory for school counselors and school psychologists who want results from their consultations.' - Martin Ritchie, Coordinator of School Counseling at The University of Toledo

'Don Dinkmeyer, Jr., and Jon Carlson have completed another excellent text. The material is well written, clear and, most importantly, highly relevant to students and practitioners who serve as consultants to individuals, schools and families. Their use of case examples, tables defining the consultation process, and current literature review provides the reader with excellent direction and understanding. This is certain to be a resource for years to come.' - Arthur Horne, Distinguished Research Professor at the University of Georgia, USA
