"The volume explains the fundamentals of CBI and examines key systemic issues linked to service delivery in general and special education settings. Clearly organized chapters review specific approaches for helping K-12 students who struggle with aggressive behaviors, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and autism." "The book discusses issues in intervening at different levels of intensity, from preventive programs for ail children in a school or grade to more targeted interventions. Particular attention is given to working with students with disabilities within the special education system." "Unique in its interdisciplinary perspective, this state-of-the-science work will enhance the knowledge and skills of a broad range of practitioners, including special educators, school psychologists and counselors, and child clinical psychologists. Graduate students in these fields will find it an informative, practical supplemental text."--BOOK JACKET.
