The consultation model as developed in its many forms by Caplan (1970), Bergan (1977),and others, has been frequently recommended for use in the schools by school psychologists. The proposed advantages for the consultation model include: (1) the psychologist can handle more cases, since much of the intervention is done by persons other than the psychologist; (2) there is greater utilization of the teacher, on an equal professional level, in all phases of intervention; (3)the teacher, in implementing the intervention, will learn to generalize these new skills to similar future cases and will be able to assist fellow teachers with problems requiring similar intervention.
