“The topic needs to be discussed and reviewed by every educational stakeholder. Nationwide, educational staffs are addressing so many social, behavioral and emotional concerns that have tremendous impact on our children ability to learn. We all need to continuously add to our arsenal of effective counseling practices.”

“With the recent focus on evidence based interventions at both the secondary and tertiary tiers of RTI, school personnel need guidance on how best to integrate interventions within already existing school systems. This book provides the necessary information for school counselors, school psychologists, school social workers, principals and special educators to intervene and meet the needs of all students.”
