This authoritative work offers guidelines for interviewing children of different ages–as well as their parents and teachers–and for weaving the resulting data into multimethod assessment and intervention planning. K-12 school psychologists and other practitioners learn specific strategies for assessing school issues, peer relations, emotional difficulties, family situations, and problem behavior. Stephanie H. McConaughy is joined by two other leading experts who have contributed chapters on assessing suicide and violence risks. In-depth case illustrations are woven throughout. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, the book includes over a dozen reproducible interviewing tools. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series, edited by T. Chris Riley-Tillman.
