Evaluating Consultation A Comparison of Measures by Judith K Larsen( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The accurate evaluation of consultation is a difficult problem because outcomes can vary according to the perspective and expectations of the respondent. A comparison of several measures for evaluating program-oriented consultations in 39 community mental health centers was based on the following outcome criteria: (1) implementation of consultant suggestions; (2) degree of problem solving; (3) usefulness of the consultant; (4) client satisfaction; (5) influence of consultation on problem solution; and (6) future interest in consultation. The methods used in the data collection included consultee questionnaires, consultant questionnaires, interviews with consultees, and direct observations. Results indicated that actual implementation of the consultant's suggestions was related to the degree of problem solution, but the two were not synonymous. Items measuring consultee satisfaction and plans for future consultations found closer relationships between these variables and implementation of the consultant's suggestions than with problem solution. Consultee judgments of the influence of the consultation were clearly related to implementation and problem solution; consultee judgments of consultation usefulness were not strongly related to these variables. Data suggest that when evaluating a process with as many outcomes as consultation, care must be taken in analyzing and explaining results. (Author/NRB)

Preparing Organizations for Consultation Some Practical Guidelines by Judith K Larsen( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preparation for consultation on the part of both the consultant and the organization can have a direct effect on the outcome of consultation. While the importance of preparation for consultation has been acknowledged, most of the literature deals with preparation on the part of the consultant, rather than the organization. This document describes research preparation for consultation on the part of the organization, and involves the study of program consultation in 40 community mental health centers throughout the country. Results based on a comparison of most effective and least effective consultations stress the importance of organizational preparation. In addition, timing was found to be a critical component in outcome. Contrary to initial expectations, unprepared organizations were not necessarily resistant to consultation; rather, they had engaged in preparation which was inappropriate, suggesting that they did not know how to prepare for consultation. The consultant should be aware that an organization's lack of preparation may reflect a lack of knowledge and experience, and is not necessarily indicative of resistance to change. (Author)

The Impact of Consultation. Executive Summary by Judith K Larsen( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A consultant is often an effective source of assistance for an agency undergoing change. Community mental health centers (n=80) randomly assigned to treatment and control groups were studied to determine the impact of problem-oriented consultation on problem solution, and the characteristics of both consultant and consultee which are critical in effective consultation. The impact of consultation was assessed by comparing staff assessments from both treatment and control groups on the extent of problem solution. Results indicated no differences in groups at 4 months following consultation, but significant increases in problem solution at 8 months followup for the treatment groups. Among the consultant characteristics found to be related to problem solution were consultant's knowledge, clarification of the problem, presentation of multiple alternatives rather than the "best" solution, and support of the organization's efforts. Specific organization characteristics related to effective consultation outcome were a director and staff receptive to consultation. The findings indicate that consultation research has the potential for helping technical assistance consultation produce the greatest possible benefit to mental health agencies. (Mcf)
Information Utilization and Non-Utilization and Executive Summary by Judith K Larsen( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Community mental health centers have been faced with mandates to introduce new programs or improve old ones often without the necessary information or expertise to implement such changes. Community mental health centers (n=39) were studied to identify the nature and extent of information use and factors related to information use. Experts visited local community centers, conducted sessions with staff and provided both general and research based information in the area of proposed program change. Trained observers recorded each idea suggested by the experts and provided copies to the consultant staff. Followup interviews with staff at four- and eight-month periods were used to determine the nature and extent of utilization. Approximately 75% of the suggestions provided to local organizations were used in the process of implementation. Information that was rejected tended to be relatively difficult to implement. Utilization in which information was adapted was the most time consuming and involved only six percent of the ideas suggested. The findings suggest that information utilization takes time, especially implementation of more complex information or adaptation of ideas. Research studies which fail to take into account the time required for utilization to occur may not provide accurate data on the extent of utilization. (Mcf)
Re-Invention in Adoption A Study of Community Mental Health Centers by Judith K Larsen( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present study re-analyzed data from a previous study in order to explore the issue of re-invention of innovations in the process of implementation by organizations following recommendations from consultants. It was hypothesized that ideas with certain characteristics would be more likely to be re-invented than adopted without change. The following variables were considered: complexity (number of people, cost, time), specificity, subject of the idea, and flexibility. Measures of utilization were made approximately two months following the consultation (T1) and again two months later (T2); chi square analyses were performed for both T1 and T2. Although not all analyses reached the .05 level of significance, the overall results suggest that those ideas which are re-invented are those which require greater rather than lesser effort. Re-invention occurs nearly as often as adoption with no change. Re-Invention is more likely to occur in cases where innovations are more complex, when innovations are irreversible, in situations where a consultant does not take active control or play a major role, and in group sessions which are relatively unstructured.

Diffusion of Innovations Among Community Mental Health Centers. Final Report by Judith K Larsen( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An information diffusion system was designed and tested that would facilitate the diffusion of innovations on a national scale among community mental health centers. The experimental design used both written and interpersonal techniques. Combinations of the techniques were applied to three treatment groups and a control group. In addition, a number of data collection instruments were designed to assess the effectiveness of diffusion techniques. The results indicate that staff reactions to all three diffusion techniques were extremely positive. When the staff was asked to indicate their preference regarding diffusion techniques, 78.7 percent preferred interpersonal techniques, 19.2 percent preferred written techniques, and 2.1 percent cited other techniques. Moreover, requests from centers and other human service agencies for written materials far exceeded original estimates. Furthermore, feedback indicated staff would like the network to be continued and expanded. (Author/WCM)
