Full Description:   

Evidence based and practical, this book presents state-of-the-science approaches for helping K-12 students who struggle with aggressive behaviors, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and autism. It explains the fundamentals of cognitive-behavioral intervention and reviews exemplary programs that offer powerful new ways to reach at-risk children and adolescents. Leading authorities thoroughly describe the process of assessment, treatment planning, implementation, and program evaluation. What makes the book unique is its focus on the nitty-gritty of school-based intervention, including how to integrate mental health services into the special education system, overcome obstacles, and provide needed skills to school personnel.

"This book is a prize for clinicians, researchers, and students alike. The editors have assembled valuable chapters that address theoretical, methodological, and clinical issues. Most impressively, the contributors tackle the often harsh realities that confront clinicians doing cognitive-behavioral therapy in real-world settings. Further, they seamlessly integrate pivotal developmental and ethnocultural variables. I am already clearing space on my bookshelf for this much-needed resource."
-Robert D. Friedberg, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Penn State Milton Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania
"Filling a critical void in the literature, this book illuminates the exciting potential of cognitive-behavioral interventions in school-based practice. The volume is current, comprehensive, and reader friendly. It explores both the theoretical foundations and the many exemplary programs paving the way in schools today. The impressive collection of scholar-authors steers clear of hyerbole in favor of more dispassionate examinations of what the science is saying. Their approach leaves the reader informed, optimistic, and energized."
-Jim Larson, PhD, Coordinator, School Psychology Program, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater
"Mayer et al. have done all those who work with children and youth with emotional and behavioral disorders a great service by editing a volume about one of our greatest challenges. The book provides better scientific understanding of how young people think about their behavior and how they can be guided to manage their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors more effectively."
-James M. Kauffman, EdD, Curry School of Education (Emeritus), University of Virginia
