Overview

With a simple focus on "what works," this practical book spells out a compelling rationale and practical blueprint for time-efficient, collaborative problem solving in the schools. Demonstrating that every contact with clients is an opportunity for empowerment and change, the authors draw upon extensive hands-on experience and the latest findings in psychotherapy outcome research to present effective strategies for handling behavioral, academic, and psychosocial problems. Tables and figures highlight the building blocks of this unique approach, and extensive case examples and sample dialogues guide school practitioners and trainees through the interview and intervention process. Addressing a range of commonly encountered difficulties, such as recurring disciplinary problems, poor academic performance, and anxiety, chapters show readers how to build a positive relationship with students, teachers, and parents; concentrate on strengths and avoid exclusive focus on clients' deficiencies; assume alternative perspectives to encourage new solutions; alter problem cycles and validate clients' values and ideas about change; and evaluate and maintain progress.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
