About the Author

Cynthia Franklin, Ph.D., is Professor and Stiernberg/Spencer Family Professor in Mental Health at The University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work, where she is Coordinator of the clinical concentration. Dr. Franklin is an internationally known leader in school social work and school mental health practice and has published widely on topics such as dropout prevention, clinical assessment, the effectiveness of solution-focused therapy in school settings, and adolescent pregnancy prevention. She served as the past Editor-in-Chief of The National Association of Social Workers' journal Children in Schools. She is co-principal investigator of a solution-focused, alternative high school project for dropout prevention funded by The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health. Mary Beth Harris, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of Central Florida. As a social work practitioner in the U.S.-Mexico border region for twenty years before entering social work education, she brings a bicultural perspective to her work. Her research and writing continue to reflect a strong bond with Mexican culture and with the needs and concerns of Hispanic populations. Dr. Harris teaches across the social work practice curriculum. Much of her research and writing centers on school social work. Her current clinical research is on Taking Charge, a school-based life skills intervention that she developed for adolescent mothers, promoting high school graduation and financial self-sufficiency. Paula Allen-Meares, Ph.D., is Dean, Norma Radin Collegiate Professor of Social Work, and Professor of Education at the University of Michigan. Her research interests include the tasks and functions of social workers employed in educational settings; psychopathology in children, adolescents, and families; adolescent sexuality; premature parenthood; and various aspects of social work practice. She is the principal investigator of the School's Global Program on Youth, an initiative supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation; co-principal investigator of the NIMH Social Work Research Center on Poverty, Risk, and Mental Health; and a co-investigator on an NIMH research grant.
