Brief Intervention for School Problems: Outcome Informed Strategies, Second Edition
Murphy, John J.; Duncan, Barry L.
Now in a revised and updated second edition, this highly practical guide provides innovative strategies for resolving academic and behavioral difficulties by enlisting the strengths and resources of students, parents, and teachers. Extensive new case material illustrates the authors' creative approach to building solutions and "busting problems" by putting clients in the driver's seat. Every chapter has been updated with current clinical, conceptual, and empirical advances. Three entirely new chapters provide real-world tools for enhancing results and accountability by monitoring intervention outcomes, offer straight-talking answers to frequently asked questions, and discuss how to support informed decisions about medication use. This book is divided into eight chapters: (1) Kenny: An Introduction to What Works; (2) Empirical Foundations of Effective Intervention; (3) Assessment 1: Recruiting the Heroic Client; (4) Assessment 2: Becoming Outcome Informed; (5) Brief Intervention: Solution Building; (6) Brief Intervention: Problem Busting; (7) Medication, Children, and Schools: The Guidelines Still Apply (with Jacqueline Sparks); and (8) Frequently Asked Questions. The following are appended: (1) Index of Client Examples; (2) Outcome and Session Rating Scales; and (3) Making the Numbers Count.
