Establishing Family-School Partnerships in School Psychology provides actionable, evidence-based practices toward effective family-school partnerships. Offering scoped and sequenced approaches to embed family-school partnership interventions within a three-tier prevention framework, the book covers mental health screening, cultural responsiveness, technology use, and more. This volume in the Foundations of School Psychology Research and Practice Series makes clear how sustained implementation of family-school partnerships can be achieved within existing educational infrastructures to promote student achievement across developmental periods and schooling levels.
"Establishing Family-School Partnerships in School Psychology is the new ‘go-to’ volume on this important topic. Thoughtfully organized within a multi-tiered intervention framework, rooted in evidence-based intervention research, practical in content, and focused on the future, this is a seminal work on family-school partnerships for school psychology researchers and practitioners."
—Cindy Carlson, Maxine Foreman Zarrow Endowed Faculty Fellow in Education in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, USA

Competent school psychologists function simultaneously as scientists, scholars, and practitioners. Therefore, they need a foundation of evidence-based practices to inform their services to educators, parents, students, and others. The Foundations of School Psychology Research and Practice Series offers school psychologists the context and skills they need to be effective in both research and practice, integrating in-depth and up-to-date coverage of important theories, methodologies, applications, approaches, and issues across a variety of topics. These books are intended for trainers seeking comprehensive course readings, researchers looking to examine concepts from school psychology-specific perspectives, and practitioners ready to build on and apply their knowledge and preparation.
