About this Textbook

Conjoint behavioral consultation (CBC) strengthens collaboration between children’s most critical learning environments – school and home – for improved academic, behavioral, and social-emotional skills. The reader-friendly, 2nd edition of Conjoint Behavioral Consultation: Promoting Family-School Connections and Interventions offers innovative applications of CBC as an ecological, evidence-based approach. In this new edition, the authors combine best practices in consultation and problem-solving for interventions that promote and support children’s potential, teachers’ educational mission, and family members’ unique strengths.

Important features in this new edition include:

  • A step-by-step framework for developing and maintaining family/school partnerships takes readers from initial interviews through plan evaluation.
  • Chapters include discussion on core interpersonal skills, including building trust, managing conflict, and communicating effectively.
  • Practical strategies illustrate working with diverse families and school personnel, improving family competence, promoting joint responsibility, and achieving other collaborative goals.
  • Case studies demonstrate CBC as implemented in traditional school, Head Start, pediatric health, and response-to-intervention (RtI) contexts.
  • In-depth research review explains the efficacy of CBC.

The progressive model of Conjoint Behavioral Consultation has a great deal to offer school psychologists, special educators and other school-based professionals as well as mental health practitioners. In addition, its accessibility makes this volume a suitable graduate text or training manual for those planning to work with children and families in these growing fields.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book promotes the idea of helping school personnel, parents, and others involved in the child’s life interact more effectively in order to encourage positive behaviors and ultimately achieve successful academic and emotional goals. … The audience includes school psychologists, special educators, and other school-based professionals as well as mental health practitioners. … it also could be a suitable graduate text or training manual. … This is material you can use immediately" (Gary B. Kaniuk, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2008)
