From the Back Cover:

The School Psychologist's SURVIVAL GUIDE

From veteran school psychologist and popular blogger Rebecca Branstetter, The School Psychologist's Survival Guide offers both new and seasoned school psychologists a practical, go-to handbook with ready-to-use strategies and time-saving reproducible materials they can use every day.

Written in an accessible style, the book explains how to bridge the gap between best practices according to research and the realities of working in a school district bureaucracy with limited resources. The School Psychologist's Survival Guide provides hands-on help in navigating the day-to-day challenges of working in a school district, managing large case loads, dealing with legal and ethical challenges on the job, crisis management, and more. The author offers advice on:

  • Getting situated at a new school and building relationships with key staff members
  • Managing your assessment caseload and completing your assessments within timelines
  • How to effectively communicate sensitive information to parents, teachers, and students
  • Developing and supporting academic, social, emotional, and behavioral interventions
  • Dealing with both individual student and school-wide crises
  • Learning your roles in Response to Intervention (RTI)
  • Practicing self care by understanding the stress response

The book also helps experienced professionals fine-tune their skills with the latest ideas and theories, such as bilingual assessment, cognitive behavioral therapy, social skills groups, and much more. Simply put, The School Psychologist's Survival Guide takes on the top challenges that are present in the day-to-day roles of today's school psychologist and provides real-world solutions.

"One of the most relatable and thorough resources for newly-graduated and veteran school psychologists working in the public school setting. Dr. Branstetter combines practical, realistic, and achievable recommendations with a personal and engaging writing style."
—Tara Egan, D.Ed., school psychologist and popular humor blogger, Charlotte, North Carolina
