Handbook of School-Based Interventions: Resolving Student Problems and Promoting Healthy Educational Environments. Jossey-Bass Social and Behavioral Science Series.
Cohen, Jeffrey J.; Fish, Marian C.
This handbook describes interventions for the major behavior problems that students may exhibit from kindergarten through high school. The book is a compilation of nontechnical summaries of intervention strategies with demonstrated or potential value for school settings. The summaries are digested from journal articles and other publications. The chapters cover: (1) classroom management (dishonest behavior, truancy, boisterous or rowdy behavior, noncompliance, physical and verbal aggression, playing the class clown, temper tantrums, annoying or bothering others, off-task behavior, and destructive behavior); (2) externalizing responses (inattentive/distractible behavior, impulsivity, hyperactivity, and attention deficit hyperactive disorder); (3) internalizing responses (anxiety and stress, fears/phobias, obsessive-compulsive behavior, low self-esteem, identity crises in homosexual youth, procrastination, elective mutism, depression, and suicidal behavior); (4) cognitive and social competence (academic performance, communication development, inappropriate masturbation, thumb sucking/nail biting, enuresis/encopresis, substance abuse, and sexual behavior); (5) relationships with peers (shyness and withdrawal, aggression, and prejudice); (6) relationships with adults (child maltreatment, running away, and cult membership); and (7) health management (acquired immune deficiency syndrome, chronic illness, Tourette syndrome, and traumatic head injury). (Chapters contain references, and some provide annotations for additional readings). (SW)
