The new American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines on education and training (Rodolfa, Bent, Eisman, Nelson, Rehm, & Ritchie (2005) list consultation as one of the five key competencies for applied psychologists in general. All counseling psychologists engage in consultation as one of their primary work activities, with the specifics being influenced by setting, population, and particular job responsibilities. The purpose of this chapter is to enhance understanding of the concepts and skills associated with the professional role, type of consultation, and focus of consulting processes for counseling psychologists serving as consultants. Additionally, suggested direction for further development of consultation for counseling psychologists is presented.
