This comprehensive sourcebook covers every aspect of school service delivery, arming practitioners with the nuts and bolts of evidence-based practice. Each of the 114 chapters serves as a detailed intervention map, beginning with a summary of the problem area and moving directly into step-by-step instructions on how to implement an evidence-based program with distinct goals in mind and methods to measure the outcome. School-based professionals in need of ready access to information on mental health disorders, developmental disabilities, health promotion, child abuse, dropout prevention, conflict resolution, crisis intervention, group work, family interventions, culturally competent practice, policy, ethics, legal issues, community involvement, accountability, and funding can now find high-quality and easy-to-implement strategies at their fintertips.

A concise, user-friendly format orients readers to each issue with a Getting Started section, then moves smoothly into What We Know, What We Can Do, Tools and Practice Examples, and Points to Remember. Quick-reference tables and charts highlight the most important information needed for daily reference, and lists of further reading and Web resources guide readers in gathering additional information to tailor their practice to suit their students' needs. Each chapter has been specifically crafted by leaders in their fields with the ultimate goal of giving school-based practitioners the tools they need to deliver the best mental health and social services possible to students, families, and communities.

This is a must-have reference for all school-based social workers, psychologists, counselors, mental health professionals, and educators.

About the Author:


Cynthia Franklin, Ph.D., is Professor and Stiernberg/Spencer Family Professor in Mental Health at The University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work, where she is Coordinator of the clinical concentration. Dr. Franklin is an internationally known leader in school social work and school mental health practice and has published widely on topics such as dropout prevention, clinical assessment, the effectiveness of solution-focused therapy in school settings, and adolescent pregnancy prevention. She served as the past Editor-in-Chief of The National Association of Social Workers' journal Children in Schools. She is co-principal investigator of a solution-focused, alternative high school project for dropout prevention funded by The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health.

Mary Beth Harris, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of Central Florida. As a social work practitioner in the U.S.-Mexico border region for twenty years before entering social work education, she brings a bicultural perspective to her work. Her research and writing continue to reflect a strong bond with Mexican culture and with the needs and concerns of Hispanic populations. Dr. Harris teaches across the social work practice curriculum. Much of her research and writing centers on school social work. Her current clinical research is on Taking Charge, a school-based life skills intervention that she developed for adolescent mothers, promoting high school graduation and financial self-sufficiency.

Paula Allen-Meares, Ph.D., is Dean, Norma Radin Collegiate Professor of Social Work, and Professor of Education at the University of Michigan. Her research interests include the tasks and functions of social workers employed in educational settings; psychopathology in children, adolescents, and families; adolescent sexuality; premature parenthood; and various aspects of social work practice. She is the principal investigator of the School's Global Program on Youth, an initiative supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation; co-principal investigator of the NIMH Social Work Research Center on Poverty, Risk, and Mental Health; and a co-investigator on an NIMH research grant.

Review:

"This volume presents school social workers with a comprehensive array of best practices for the difficult issues faced in today's schools, such as overcoming obstacles to good mental health, crisis intervention, bullying, and responding to the mandates of IDEIA 2004 and NCLB. As school mental health professionals, school social workers will find the evidence-based practices described in terms that are understandable and applicable to actual everyday school challenges. Seldom has a book promised so much and carried through so completely. It is a privilege to be able to recommend this sourcebook to today's school social work practitioners and those to come."--Judith Kullas Shine, President, School Social Work Association of America

"This is an impressive volume, containing some 114 chapters about best practices for students with emotional, behavioral, and other mental health issues--written in clear, compelling, and down-to-earth language. It fills an important niche by reviewing the research base behind a comprehensive range of specific school practices, but when research evidence does not exist, the chapters provide practical and well-grounded suggestions for practitioners to follow. This book takes a big step forward in grounding school mental health practice in empirical evidence."--Kimberly Eaton Hoagwood, Columbia University

"Should be required reading for social workers, counselors, mental health workers, and anyone else who is interested in providing services in schools. This massive volume tells it all, interpreting evidence-based research for practical use, replete with examples, tables, charts, and forms...all you need to know if you want to help children and their families deal with the broad spectrum of mental health issues."--Joy Dryfoos, co-editor, Community Schools in Action

"This fine edition at a good price might work will in my course, where we discuss the fall of the republic, and the rise of the Empire."--Glen Coper, Brigham Young University
