For nearly two decades, NASP's Best Practices in School Psychology volumes have served as the profession's primary reference on the core body of knowledge regarding children's healthy learning and development. This latest two-volume edition, Best Practices in School Psychology IV, brings that expertise into the 21st Century to help school psychologists successfully manage today's complex challenges in service to students, families, and schools. BPIV updates and expands on BPIIIto reflect changes in:
-Theory, research, and practice
-Expectations and role within schools
-Needs and diversity of students, families, and educators
-Collaboration and communication with other stakeholders
-Assessment and intervention strategies
-Laws, funding, and public policy
-Mental health and education systems
-Training and professional standards
As earlier Best Practices editions did, BPIV melds theory, research, and practice to provide a thorough yet concise discussion of a broad range of relevant issues. Well over 100 leading experts contributed to the 101 new or revised chapters, organized in a functional two-volume set. Each chapter delivers an overview of an important topic, puts it into a professional context, offers practical strategies, and recommends additional resources. No other single resource enables you to quickly place so many topics into perspective and competently integrate them into your daily work.
