Edited by Kenneth W. Merrell, PhD, University of Oregon, USA, Ruth A. Ervin, PhD, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada, and Gretchen Gimpel Peacock, PhD, Utah State University, USA.


"The editors have brought together some of the field's best authors to produce a unique resource that will meet the needs of both experienced practitioners and those new to the profession. The Handbook will be especially important for practitioners in the midst of shifting their practice to support response to intervention (RTI) in general and special education--the consistent problem-solving focus is exactly what is needed." - Michael Vanderwood, Graduate School of Education, University of California-Riverside, USA "The volume offers a wealth of evidence-based strategies for working with children exhibiting a wide range of academic and behavioral problems. Readers will greatly appreciate the practicality and clarity of the problem-solving procedures provided throughout the chapters. Graduate students and practitioners will find themselves frequently consulting this excellent handbook for guidance on both assessment and intervention." - George Bear, School Psychology Program, University of Delaware, USA "This comprehensive book applies the problem-solving model to both academic and social-emotional problems. The authors address topics that are highly relevant for school psychologists who are moving beyond the traditional assessment role, and I was impressed with the breadth and scope of their treatment. The style is concise, capturing the essence of what practitioners need to know and do. The book is appropriate for both graduate students and professionals. Sections and chapters are well organized, making it easy to pinpoint specific topics during practicum and internship classes." - Ellie L. Young, Department of Counseling Psychology and Special Education, Brigham Young University, USA
