Stop the Bus deals directly with the serious social issues affecting contemporary youth and tackles the dilemmas both counselor and subject face when dealing with these situations. The book contains information about several issues such as abuse, anger, depression, self-esteem, and violence that impact school students today. Each issue has a brief narrative explanation, approximately ten essential questions or statements for assessment or action regarding the issue, and suggested interventions determined by the level of concern for the student. Stop the Bus provides easy access to relevant information required for important decisions about a student and can be used as either a handbook or teaching aid. Geared towards school counselors and mental health professionals, this book will also be applicable in mental health classes dealing with student assessment in the school setting.
