Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series


Problem analysis is undertaken when the data collected during problem identification indicate the existence of a target problem(s). During problem analysis, the consultant and the consultee jointly identify factors that may lead to problem resolution. For example, the consultant may assist the consultee in focusing on variables such as the setting, intrapersonal child characteristics, or skill deficits of the child. The consultant and the consultee use the identified factors to develop a plan designed to achieve a solution to the client’s problem(s).
