This indispensable practitioner resource presents classroom-based strategies for supporting all students' success and psychological wellness in grades K-9. The authors clearly explain what makes a classroom a healthy place to learn. They describe effective procedures for recognizing when a classroom is lacking essential supports, intervening to put missing supports into place, and evaluating the effects on learning and development. Rich case studies show how the strategies have been used by actual educators. Reproducible worksheets and planning tools are included; the large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying. 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.

Beth Doll, PhD, is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of School Psychology in the College of Education and Human Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She has served as an officer or president of three state school psychology associations as well as Division 16 (School Psychology) of the American Psychological Association. Dr. Doll's research addresses models of school mental health that foster resilience and enhance the well-being of students, and program evaluation strategies that demonstrate the impact and accountability of school mental health services. She has published journal articles on issues of resilience, school mental health, self-determination, the identification of emotional disabilities, and students' friendships.

Katherine Brehm, PhD, is a practicing school psychologist with experience in the Ysleta Independent School District (Texas) and the Denver Public Schools (Colorado). She has been a faculty member in the Department of School Psychology at the University of Texas El Paso and the University of Colorado at Denver. As a school psychologist, Dr. Brehm led her district in developing cross-disciplinary roles for school psychologists that increase the relevance of mental health services to learning, provided inservice training on teaching children with attention deficits, and planned for the district's implementation of standards-based education. She has conducted research in consultation, coauthored a book on interventions for school emotional and behavioral problems, and published nationally on the topic of resilience.
Steven Zucker, PhD, is a private consultant in school psychology in the Denver metropolitan area. Previously, he was a faculty member at the University of Colorado at Denver, practiced for 17 years as a school psychologist in the Cherry Creek Public Schools (Colorado), and was instrumental in creating a school environment that valued the full inclusion of students with disabilities. Dr. Zucker co-crafted Colorado's Blueprint for the Future, the state's agenda for integrated educational and mental health services for students. He has presented statewide and nationally on resilience, systems change, and inclusive practices. Dr. Zucker co-developed the ClassMaps model with Dr. Doll and served as a coordinator on the first ClassMaps project.
