Goal attainment scaling (GAS) is presented as a viable intervention evaluation methodology that may be readily incorporated into a conjoint behavioral consultation framework. A case study is presented that demonstrates how GAS may be used with consultees, serving to identify the goals, progress, and outcomes of consultation interventions. Moreover, use of GAS permits considerable flexibility in the consultation process. The benefits and limitations of GAS in the practice of consultation are also discussed.
