This chapter (1) presents various theoretical frameworks that contribute to our conceptualization of conjoint behavioral consultation (i.e., behavioral theory, systems theory, and ecological theory), (2) defines conjoint behavioral consultation, and (3) explores various assumptions, advantages, goals, and practical considerations.
