About the Book

Featuring new chapters on bullying, sexual assault, natural disasters, eating disorders, and cultural considerations, the second edition of this highly popular Handbook provides a one-stop reference for mental health professionals who face a bewildering variety of school-based crises. Key features include a focus on both prevention and intervention and ongoing discussions of the research that underlies best practice.

Like the first edition, chapters follow a parallel structure that includes:

*the incidence, prevalence, and impact of the crisis;

*theories regarding precipitating factors;

*discussion of who is at risk for encountering the crisis;

*primary prevention activities;

*methods of working with high-risk clients;

*developmentally-appropriate methods and intervention activities for individuals; and

*developmentally-appropriate methods and activities for groups.

The result is an unusually coherent volume that is suitable for graduate work in school psychology, school counseling, school social work, and school nursing, or as a reference work for in-service practitioners.


"…provides guidance to mental health professionals on a variety of school-based crises. Key features of the book include a focus on both prevention and intervention and ongoing discussions of the research that underlies best practice."

About the Series

Consultation, Supervision, and Professional Learning Series in School Psychology

Under the advisory editorship of Daniel Newman, the Routledge Consultation, Supervision, and Professional Learning in School Psychology Series will provide a full array of handbooks, textbooks, and books for practitioners focused on the areas of school consultation, supervision, and professional learning. Contributions to the series will focus on the process and outcomes of indirect service delivery in schools. Handbooks will be edited volumes that provide in-depth, up-to-date coverage of the latest theories, research, methodologies, issues, applications, and policies in targeted areas of study. Each handbook will profile the boundaries and various sectors within its field of study and will vary in length from 400 to 600 printed pages. Textbooks may be either edited or authored volumes that include some theory but focus mainly on the skills that are central to evidence-based practice. They will generally range from 200-400 pages. Books for practitioners will be authored volumes that provide actionable strategies for working professionals. They will generally range from 150-300 pages. Following is a list of recent publications and volumes currently in development:
