Every interaction with a young person who is struggling—no matter how brief—is an opportunity for change. This highly practical guide helps school practitioners find effective solutions to academic and behavioral problems by enlisting the ideas and resources of students, parents, and teachers. It shows how to build on the capabilities that each client brings to the intervention process, within an innovative, research-supported, time-limited framework. Extensive case material illustrates the authors' creative approach to building solutions and "busting problems" by putting clients in the driver's seat. Filled with real-world examples from both elementary and secondary settings, the book presents creative strategies for addressing disciplinary problems, poor academic performance, anxiety, compulsive behaviors, and other common difficulties.
