About the Author:

Brett J. Novick has a master's degree in family therapy as well as post certifications in school social work as well as educational leadership and is an adjunct instructor at Rutgers University. He has published numerous national and international articles as well as received several awards for his work in education, administration, counseling, and social work.

Review:

Brett Novick's vast experiences and professional interactions as an educator, counselor and social worker have been synthesized in Parents and Teachers Working Together. This book will not offer you canned or instant solutions; rather, it provides thoughtful and reflective recommendations that are practical and research-based. It is a book that every teacher, specialist, and administrator, whether beginning, mid-career or experienced, should have as a ready reference. It is clearly a "best practices" work from a distinguished educator and author. (Jeffrey Graber, associate director, Educational Leadership Programs, New Jersey Principal and Supervisor Association/Foundation for Educational Administration)

Brett Novick deals with a situation that is facing educators throughout America. Dealing with challenging parents and bringing them to work with the school in a positive way is essential for districts in this day and age to be successful. Novick discusses this topic in a thoughtful, organized way for all educators to understand. I recommend this book for both novice and experienced teachers and administrators. (Thomas Gialanella, interim superintendent of Schools for Brick Township Public Schools and former superintendent of Jackson Township Public Schools)

This is a great book that school counselors should add to their professional library. Parents and Teachers Working Together is loaded with many scenarios that we all have experienced at one time or another in our professional careers, and Novick offers viable solutions and alternatives for how we, as school counselors, can approach them. This book covers areas such as the current school climate, examining one’s anger management style, identifying the top ten most challenging parent/family types, understanding and reacting to challenging parents, and the importance of involving our colleagues in the schoolhouse. This is a must have for not only school counselors but also anyone else in education. (Jim Lukach, executive director, New Jersey School Counselor Association, Inc.)

Brett Novick provides school administrators with a comprehensive manual of the dos and don’ts of working with challenging parents and school staff. He describes several different ways parents and school staff can hinder the educational process for their children/students. A number of concrete and easy-to-implement methods are given to minimize these hindrances to promote a healthy and positive school atmosphere for all. (Merrill Berkowitz, PhD, BCBA-D, board certified behavior analyst, New Jersey certified school psychologist, St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital; adjunct professor, William Paterson University and Caldwell University)
