Appeared in Choice on 2013-07-01:
The second edition of this sourcebook aims to provide "best practices to social workers, counselors and mental health professionals who work in schools or whose practices involve interventions in school systems." This comprehensive work offers expanded and updated coverage beyond the 2006 first edition. It addresses school-based services for high-risk students, whether for psychological, mental health, neurological, or physical disorders requiring interventions in keeping with IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) and NCLB (No Child Left Behind) guidelines. The 15 chapters new to this edition are based on feedback from practitioners in the field who wanted to know how interventions are used within an RTI (Response to Intervention) framework. Chapters feature an article by an authority in the field; practice examples (in some cases); a summary of "key points to remember"; links to websites for "further learning"; and a list of references. A companion website includes several online-only chapters and a video . Most impressive is the way in which articles link research to practice. This is a more current alternative to the pre-RTI, four-volume work titled The Crisis in Youth Mental Health: Critical Issues and Effective Programs, edited by H. E. Fitzgerald, R. Zucker, and K. Freeark (CH, Oct'06, 44-1230). Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through professionals/practitioners. S. A. Ariew University of South Florida

Main Description
The School Services Sourcebook covers every aspect of school service delivery, arming practitioners with the nuts and bolts of evidence-based practice. The second edition has been significantly revised with a new structure including 73 chapters divided into five Parts across thirteen Sections, with an additional six chapters included in an online section found on the book's companion website. Fifteen new chapters cover key topics such as implementing an RTI framework, positive behavioral supports, school climate, functional behavioral assessment, the integration of ethics, Autism and suicide, school engagement, military families, Latino immigrant families, classroom management, transition planning and several chapters that speak to assessment and accountability. Each chapter serves as a detailed intervention map, quickly summarizing the problem area before presenting step-by-step instructions on how to implement an evidence-based program with clear goals in mind and methods to measure the outcome. The concise, user-friendly format from the first edition has been retained, orienting readers to each issue with a Getting Started section, then moves smoothly into What We Know, What We Can Do, Tools and Practice Examples, and Key Points to Remember. A new section, Applying Interventions within Response-to-Intervention Framework, has been added to each chapter to facilitate the implementation of an RTI model. Quick-reference tables and charts highlight the most important information needed for daily reference, and annotated lists of further reading and Web resources guide readers in gathering additional information to tailor their practice to suit their students' needs. Each chapter has been specifically crafted by leaders in their fields with the ultimate goal of giving school-based practitioners the tools they need to deliver the best mental health and social services possible to students, families, and communities. This sourcebook is an invaluable reference for all school-based social workers, psychologists, counselors, mental health professionals, educators, and administrators.
