“The topic needs to be discussed and reviewed by every educational stakeholder. Nationwide, educational staffs are addressing so many social, behavioral and emotional concerns that have tremendous impact on our children ability to learn. We all need to continuously add to our arsenal of effective counseling practices.”

Karen M. Joseph, School Counselor
Roberto Clemente Middle School, Germantown, MD

“With the recent focus on evidence based interventions at both the secondary and tertiary tiers of RTI, school personnel need guidance on how best to integrate interventions within already existing school systems. This book provides the necessary information for school counselors, school psychologists, school social workers, principals and special educators to intervene and meet the needs of all students.”

Jennifer Betters, School Counselor
Verona Area School District, WI

“This text offers practitioners an authoritative and succinct guide to multi-tiered counseling interventions within the school setting. The authors provide a well-balanced combination of theoretical support, consideration for compliance issues, counseling techniques, and direct application examples. As our nation moves to implementation of the Response-to-Intervention (RtI) model of service delivery, this book fills a critical gap in professional development needs for school practitioners.”
