What are the common pitfalls experienced by school researchers and how can they be avoided? Edited by Lisa M. Dinella of Monmouth University, Conducting Science-Based Psychology Research in Schools includes the collective knowledge of both established and emerging names in the field, providing an unparalleled resource for those interested in psychological research within schools. First and foremost, this guidebook offers a framework for conceptualizing scientifically rigorous research with schools, instead of on or in them, by emphasizing that collaboration with school stakeholders administrators, teachers, parents is essential for quality research. With detailed information on how to build and maintain research programs and avoid common problems, this volume includes insights from both researchers and the education professionals with whom they collaborate. Organized to advise the researcher from the beginning of a project through to the end, this volume first looks at initiating and nurturing relationships with school stakeholders, moves next to research design and methodology, and concludes with disseminating research findings. Conducting Science-Based Psychology Research in Schools is an essential tool for courses in research methods and school-based research in fields ranging from psychology to education, social work, and family and human development.
