Dialogue between professionals on issues requiring particular expertise or issues concerning a particular client, is known as consultation. The consulting professionals are often of different professions or specialized differently. A psychologist might consult a physician regarding a client’s illness or a teacher might consult a school psychologist regarding a student’s mathematical difficulties. One appointment may be sufficient or appointments may be regular. In consultation focus is always on a specific client or a specific case.
At Mentline we offer consultation within our expertise, for instance as part of our school psychological services.
