Research in school consultation: A content analysis of selected journals

Judith L. Alpert, M. David Yammer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Analyzed research articles published during the last 12 yrs on content and methodology utilized in consultation research. Attention was given to type of consultation, subject matter, setting for consultation research, research design, statistical techniques, and methodology. The analysis revealed that there does not seem to be continuity and follow-through in research on consultation. The literature represents discrete studies rather than systematic, programmatic research. Further, relatively unsophisticated statistical techniques were utilized. Survey questionnaires and baseline studies were also frequently utilized. Most of the research is behavioral, discusses individual cases, and focuses on remediation, and most concerns elementary schools.
