Abstract

Today’s schools, universities, and communities are comprised of increasingly culturally diverse populations, and contemporary researchers and practitioners are challenged to demonstrate the efficacy of their work within multicultural settings. There is a growing body of literature that informs the study of multicultural aspects of consultation. The purpose of this chapter is to summarize current research findings, methods, and literature and to propose future directions for studying the multicultural aspects of school consultation. The chapter begins with conceptual foundations about culture and the multicultural aspects of consultation, followed by an examination of research methods used to study these aspects, a summary of extant research findings, and an integration of what we know about the processes and outcomes attained through multicultural approaches to consultation. The chapter concludes with a summary of available evidence regarding the multicultural aspects of consultation and sets a research agenda for future investigations to contribute to this area of consultation research and practice.
