This impressive volume reintroduces the importance of -- and the contributions made by -- social psychology to school psychology. It provides an overview of the basic areas of social psychology (history, attitudes, attribution, attraction, and research methods) as well as the traditional school psychology functions (assessment, therapy, and consultation). To unite these two crucial areas, the editors and their contributors provide detailed discussions of specific educational and social issues such as substance abuse prevention and treatment, loneliness, cooperative versus competitive environments, and integration of handicapped and culturally different children. Based on classical, contemporary, and cutting-edge research and theory, this text should become an essential reference tool for all school psychologists.

For the past 20 years, rational-emotive therapy (RET) has been employed by consultants to help bring about changes not only in the way parents and teachers manage mental health and educational problems of school-age children, but also within organizations and families. This is the first book devoted exclusively to the applications of RET in consultation. For the first time, international experts reveal the ways that RET can be applied at different levels of consultation -- client-centered, consultee-centered, systemic-centered -- to help identify and overcome obstacles to effective consultation. This volume reveals the missing link to effective consultation, namely, the emotional problems consultees bring with them to the practical problems with which they are faced. Rational-emotive consultation methods are ideally suited to help give consultees empowerment over their emotional problems. In addition, RET is an ideal adjunct to be included along with behavioral and organizational consultation methods already in use. Written largely for school psychologists and consultants who work in educational and mental health settings, this book demonstrates the variety of ways that RET can be used to conduct in-service and professional/personal development programs for teachers, parents, school administrators and other professional groups. It is also a unique resource for practitioners working with the emotional, behavioral and learning problems of school-age children, and looking for new and effective ways of incorporating caregivers in the treatment of these children.

The rapid growth of behavior therapy over the past 20 years has been well doc umented. Yet the geometric expansion of the field has been so great that it deserves to be recounted. We all received our graduate training in the mid to late 1960s. Courses in behavior therapy were then a rarity. Behavioral training was based more on informal tutorials than on systematic programs of study. The behavioral literature was so circumscribed that it could be easily mastered in a few months of study. A mere half-dozen books (by Wolpe, Lazarus, Eysenck, Ullmann, and Krasner) more-or-Iess comprised the behavioral library in the mid- 1960s. Semirial works by Ayllon and Azrin, Bandura, Franks, and Kanfer in 1968 and 1969 made it only slightly more difficult to survey the field. Keeping abreast of new developments was not very difficult, as Behaviour Research and Therapy and the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis were the only regular outlets for behavioral articles until the end of the decade, when Behavior Therapy and Be havior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry first appeared. We are too young to be maudlin, but "Oh for the good old days!" One of us did a quick survey of his bookshelves and stopped counting books with behavior or behavioral in the titles when he reached 100. There were at least half again as many behavioral books without those words in the title.
