"Provides practical, powerful, easy--to--apply tools for helping school psychologists, trainers, administrators, and teachers make classrooms into more caring learning environments. The authors have translated the research into clear recommendations for classroom practices and dynamics that can improve the academic achievement of all children."
--Kevin P. Dwyer, MA, NCAP, past president, National Association of School Psychologists
"This book presents a comprehensive program for school--based social and academic competence enhancement. Using an ecological systems approach, and drawing on resilience research, the book describes ways to establish, maintain, and evaluate a classroom climate that helps children adapt and thrive. A 'must--read' text for preservice teachers and an excellent professional development resource for educators and school practitioners."
--Anne Pierce Winsor, MS, Director, Project A.C.T. Early, University of Georgia
"The authors have made a significant contribution to the literature on school--based mental health. By situating the locus of change within the classroom, rather than the individual child, the authors have opened powerful new avenues for promoting children's social--emotional development and school success. The blend of theory and practical implementation advice will make this an invaluable resource for school--based professionals."
--Jean A. Baker, PhD, School Psychology Program, Michigan State University
