MEDIA REVIEWS
"School Violence Intervention, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive look at a very serious and complex issue for today's educators. This important resource offers an analysis of the many facets of school violence, explores its causes, and presents research-based interventions to address this problem. The interventions are practical in design and can be useful to school psychologists, counselors, school administrators, and classroom teachers. With an ever-increasing awareness of the importance of school safety, educators must be ready to take a proactive stance on this crucial issue. This up-to-date volume will allow them to do just that."--Janice E. Miller, MEd, Elementary School Counselor, Allentown, Pennsylvania

"As thorough a treatment as I have ever seen. This book offers a comprehensive historical overview of the subject of school violence, and, more importantly, describes literally hundreds of holistic, mutually complementary interventions at all levels: country, state, community, school, classroom, and family. This book should be used by university programs in education, administration, and school psychology as the text for courses on interventions to prevent school violence. In addition, every professional, school, and school district will want to have this book on hand as a reference guide to inform prevention, training, and crisis response."--Virginia Shrader, MSEd, NCSP, NBCT, School Psychologist, International School of San Pedro Sula, Honduras

"This volume represents a giant step forward in understanding and confronting school violence. Over the past few decades, experiences of violence in the schools have taught us a great deal. This up-to-date second edition offers a well-organized synthesis of what we have learned. Provided is the current, comprehensive, and practical information needed for schools to effectively confront the critical and complex task of creating healthy school environments. A most valuable resource for mental health professionals, administrators, teachers, and community leaders, now and for years to come."--Gayle Pitcher, PhD, Department of Psychological Services, Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District, Houston, Texas
