Chapter 7 discusses the various ways in which the RP may perform their role in a consultatory fashion, which may include serving as a core member of a treatment team, conferring with other healthcare professionals in a more autonomous fashion, consulting with attorneys or the court system in legal proceedings, advising businesses or schools about job site or educational accommodations, and evaluating the individual with reference to impairment/disability issues. It also discusses how, in this role, the RP may encounter different treatment team models across organizations; the interdisciplinary team, multidisciplinary team, and transdisciplinary team, and how issues of behavioural difficulties and/or compliance with treatment may often prompt psychological consultation. It also covers the importance of possessing the ability and willingness to respond to specific referral questions, alongside timeliness, competency, facility in establishing rapport, usefulness of reporting and recommendations, and diagnostic and treatment planning acumen.
