Offering a unique focus on evidence-based interventions, critical thinking, and diversity, School Social Work: A Direct Practice Guide, by JoAnn Jarolmen, covers the foundations of working with children and adolescents in the schools. Each chapter reviews a basic concept and then provides two in-depth activities that allow readers to apply the concepts to a variety of client populations.

In The Press

Cyberbullying, program development for bullying prevention, the Olweus anti-bullying program, PFLAG, conflict resolution and peer mediation are among the topics discussed in School Social Work: A Practical Guide. Researchers will be especially interested in the sections on innovations from abroad. Countries covered include: Canada, Ghana, Japan, Korea, Germany, Hungary, Malta, and the Scandinavian countries. Current problems faced by the world's children are also discussed. Solution focused therapy designed specifically for the schools is one of the guiding frameworks. On the practical side, substance abuse screening tools, a suicide screening tool, survey material, and guidelines for work on behalf of sexual minority students are provided. This book is an much-needed addition to the literature that will be useful for school social workers, social work educators, and researchers on social work with children and youths.
