In today’s schools, it is imperative that school-based mental health professionals be adequately trained in the knowledge and impact of pediatric health disorders on children’s academic, social, and emotional progress and performance. This book will provide practitioners and researchers with the most relevant and up-to-date information concerning conceptual models and applications of intervention and prevention strategies in pediatric school psychology. Rather than making specific disorders the book’s primary focus, the authors discuss practical topics such as improving adherence, promoting successful school reintegration, reducing stress and enhancing coping skills, improving pain management, and enhancing quality of life. Prevention strategies covered include developing multi-tiered programs, monitoring program effectiveness and quality of implementation, and programming for sustainability. A unique feature of this book is its emphasis on developing leaders in pediatric school psychology, with chapters devoted to important topics including program development and evaluation, grant writing, and manuscript reviewing and preparation. An accompanying CD contains PowerPoint presentations and guidelines for practice to assist with lectures and describes strategies for application in clinical and school settings.


"[This book] represents a truly novel, innovative, progressive approach to providing critical information for the field. Power and Bradley-Klug present a conceptually rich and substantively expansive resource, and do so in a way that will be highly useful for training, research and practice. This fresh and exciting resource is sure to make an impact on training and practice throughout the country!" - Susan Sheridan, PhD, George Holmes University Professor of Educational Psychology, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

"This is an excellent resource for researchers and practitioners interested in establishing interdisciplinary and inter-systemic partnerships to facilitate development of population-based services to promote pediatric health and prevent, intervene, and treat pediatric health problems." - Bonnie K. Nastasi, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Tulane University
