This reader-friendly second edition of Sheridan and Kratochwill's important work 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. A step-by-step framework for developing and maintaining family/school partnerships takes readers from initial interviews through plan evaluation. Practical strategies illustrate working with diverse families and school personnel, improving family competence, promoting joint responsibility, and achieving other collaborative goals.
