Kenneth W. Merrell, PhD, until his death in 2011, was Professor of School Psychology and Director of the Oregon Resiliency Project at the University of Oregon. For 25 years, Dr. Merrell's influential teaching and research focused on social-emotional assessment and intervention for at-risk children and adolescents and social-emotional learning in schools. He published over 90 peer-reviewed journal articles; several books and nationally normed assessment instruments; and the Strong Kids programs, a comprehensive social and emotional learning curriculum. Dr. Merrell was a Fellow of the Division of School Psychology (Division 16) and the Society for Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (Division 53) of the American Psychological Association. He received the Senior Scientist Award from Division 16, the Division's highest honor for excellence in science.Review:
"This exceptionally useful book synthesizes essential knowledge regarding internalizing problems: what they are, how they can best be recognized and assessed, and which specific interventions can produce successful outcomes. Balancing the importance of treatment fidelity with client specificity and real-world practicality, Merrell masterfully integrates contemporary research with his clinical experience in school-based settings. He offers clear, intelligent guidelines for facilitating real change in children and for promoting their optimal social and emotional well-being. Both university trainers and practitioners will find this a superb resource for how to really link assessment to intervention for internalizing problems at individual, family, and school-wide levels. Among the many strengths of this excellent book are the inclusion of social and emotional learning programs for promoting mental health, presented in just the right amount of detail, and the concise informational summary of medications, other treatments, and referral guidelines. I plan to use this text in my classes in child/adolescent interventions and in my own clinical practice. I highly recommend it!"--Harriet Cobb, EdD, Combined-Integrated Doctoral Program in Clinical and School Psychology, James Madison University
"The second edition of this highly regarded book retains the excellent qualities of the original volume. It is well written, easily understandable by the beginning graduate student, and yet clearly of value to the experienced practitioner. The book is highly practical and accessible, contains much hands-on information, and evaluates interventions in terms of their theoretical and empirical support. The important new chapter on social and emotional learning as part of a three-tiered intervention approach expands the discussion currently underway about response-to-intervention models. Faculty will find this book well suited to graduate-level courses in school psychology and counseling; graduate students will welcome its balance between foundational material and practical application."--Caroline H. Wandle, PhD, Director, School Psychology Program, Department of Education, Tufts University
"Depression and anxiety are widely experienced among children and adolescents yet are frequently overlooked and undertreated, especially in schools. In this updated and highly useful guide, Merrell provides a practical, evidence-based approach to the assessment and treatment of these two disorders. A particularly useful addition to the second edition is the information presented on social and emotional learning and its utility for mental health promotion. This text fills a major need among mental health professionals working in schools, including school psychologists, counselors, and social workers. In addition, it is an excellent text for college and university courses in developmental psychopathology, cognitive-behavioral therapy, child/adolescent counseling and psychotherapy, and school-based interventions."--David N. Miller, PhD, Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology, University at Albany, State University of New York
