COUN 524-01 - Systems Consultation

Online: August 31, 2020 - December 7, 2020, Monday, 4:15pm - 7:00pm

This three (3)-unit graduate counseling course serves as an analysis of organizational systems and organizational development consulting skills. There is an emphasis on the individual and team consultation processes. In addition, students will strengthen methods of initiating and maintaining consultative relationships with and among teachers, staff, and parents to prevent school failure, and increase success, of pupils who have physical, social, intellectual and emotional needs.

The course will begin with an overview of consultation and collaboration, including the generic model of consultation and the various stages of the consultative process. Students will examine the school as an organization and the issues and trends that face schools from a psychosocial perspective. As the theoretical and functional foundations are laid, students will begin to develop their understanding of the many roles school counselors and school psychologists take within school-based settings, and how they can serve as catalysts for systems change and social justice through their facilitation of multi-tiered systems of support that promote resilience, ameliorate risk, and create a positive learning environment for all students. Lastly, students will become familiar with models of counselor intervention, collaboration, and consultation with special emphasis on Caplan’s mental health and behavioral models and Lambert’s model of consultee- centered mental health consultation in school-based settings.


Preference is given to instructors who are credentialed school counselors or school psychologists with experience in preK-12 urban schools.

Faculty who teach any PPS specialization course will need to have worked in preK-12 school settings in the last three years.
