Joseph E. Colford, Ph.D. is an associate professor in the Psychology Department of Georgian Court University in Lakewood, New Jersey, and is the Director of the Graduate Program in School Psychology. He has had extensive experience in public education as a school psychologist, in private practice, and in higher education as associate professor. His experiences in working with school-age children in the aftermath of a variety of crisis types lead to his collaboration with Dr. Cavaiola in this casebook and in their earlier work, A Practical Guide to Crisis Intervention (Brooks/Cole, Cengage Learning). Dr. Colford also created a graduate-level course, School Crisis Prevention and Intervention, for his program, incorporating sound practices for crisis prevention and for crisis intervention with children, adolescents, their schools and families. The political and social landscape of the 21st century convinced him that such a casebook was important for mental health professionals who work in a variety of settings.
