Course Description and Target Audience

Consultation is an essential and necessary component of every psychologist’s practice. Consultation allows a professional to ensure ethical decision-making and adequate delivery of mental health services. It is uniquely different from supervision by way of providing expertise to other professionals or engaging with peers in shared knowledge. This course will provide an overview of psychological consultation, minimizing legal risks potentially associated with consultation and how to provide effective and professional consultation.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians etc).

Learning Objectives

  • Provide a basic foundational understanding of consultation to allow participants to demonstrate understanding of best practice guidelines.
  • Describe how supervision differs from psychological consultation and state ways to apply consultation in one’s work as a professional.
  • List legal and ethical considerations in the practice of consultation.
  • Describe at least two ways to apply consultation in practice.
