Herding the Animals into the Barn: A Parent Consultation Model

Alexandra Murray Harrison, M.D.

Initial assessments of children with psychological problems are important both to develop appropriate diagnoses and to provide the basis for productive discussions with parents on treatment alternatives. This paper develops an assessment method referred to as the Parent Consultation Model (PCM) that emphasizes the use of videotape micro-analysis and developmental theory to provide critical information to parents as well as to the clinician in this important initial stage. The paper provides a description of the PCM and an expanded example of the use of the PCM, including illustrations of how these methods can be used to organize information and engage parents in the initial consultation. The paper concludes with some observations on the role of new techniques and ideas in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
