Conjoint Behavioral Consultation in Practice: Working with Diverse Families
Conjoint behavioral consultation (CBC) is concerned with achieving important child-related goals by establishing and strengthening partnerships among primary systems that support development. Given its joint foci on content (the tangible implementation of evidence-based interventions for socially valid targets) and process (the intangible mechanisms used in practice to achieve optimal outcomes), no two consultation interactions or relationships are identical. Rather, within the structure of the CBC model, delivery of services can be responsive to individual needs, circumstances, and priorities. The flexibility to adapt to situations that are inherently idiosyncratic is particularly important when working with families and children from diverse backgrounds and cultures, which is the focus of this chapter.
