Conjoint Behavioral Consultation: Promoting Family-School Connections And Interventions
Conjoint Behavioral Consultation: Promoting Family-School Connections and Interventions
This reader-friendly second edition of Sheridan and Kratochwill’s important work offers innovative applications of CBC as an ecological, evidence-based approach. In this new edition, the authors combine best practices in consultation and problem-solving for interventions that promote and support children’s potential, teachers’ educational mission, and family members’ unique strengths. A step-by-step framework for developing and maintaining family/school partnerships takes readers from initial interviews through plan evaluation. Practical strategies illustrate working with diverse families and school personnel, improving family competence, promoting joint responsibility, and achieving other collaborative goals.
From the reviews of the second edition:
"This book promotes the idea of helping school personnel, parents, and others involved in the child’s life interact more effectively in order to encourage positive behaviors and ultimately achieve successful academic and emotional goals. … The audience includes school psychologists, special educators, and other school-based professionals as well as mental health practitioners. … it also could be a suitable graduate text or training manual. … This is material you can use immediately" (Gary B. Kaniuk, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2008)
