R632 Discovery Miles 6 320 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days


The Grief Support Group Curriculum provides a basis for assisting children and teenagers as they learn about mourning through facing death of a close or special friend. The aim of this curriculum is to facilitate healthy variations of mourning and positive adaptations following the death of a friend or family member. The work illustrates mourning in four stages of development and is accordingly divided into four separate texts. The texts focus on preschool-aged children, children in kindergarten through grade two, children in grades three through six, and teenagers.
This format affords participants opportunities to meet peers who have also experienced loss. The participants are helped to approach and express their grief through a variety of activities including drawing, sculpting, music, games, keeping a journal, problem-solving, drama, stories and movements. By providing death education, coping, and self-care techniques, the group sessions help youths get in touch with their feelings and the pain of loss.
Each curriculum contains ten ninety-minute sessions that should be implemented over a period of ten weeks. By employing age-appropriate themes to engage the child and provide continuity throughout the sessions, the division of material within the curricula assures that the activities reflect the developmental level of the grieving child or adolescent. Each person grieves differently, and Mourning Child Grief Support Group Curriculum addresses the issues related to mourning while recognizing the importance of individuality in grieving.

R2,989 Discovery Miles 29 890 Special order

Each year nearly 2.5 million elementary school children are failed. Economic analyses suggest that this costs taxpayers over US$20 billion each year. Given the recent political momentum pushing for increased standards and accountability in our schools, actions toward an "end to social promotion" are occurring nationally. However, the research during the past 30 years fails to demonstrate the effectiveness of early grade retention as an academic intervention. In addition to the economic and structural problems created by ineffective focus on retention, this practice and policy also has significal educational repercussions for students. Grade Retention and Social Promotion examines retention as an academic intervention, presenting perspectives on the long history of research regarding the efficacy of this strategy, as well as new thinking on the topic. Drawing on both socio-emotional and academic outcomes over the years, this book presents the first complete book account of the theory and practice behind grade retention, as well as the obvious and more subtle practical outcomes. For the very first time, this book brings together current research on this controversial practice affecting teachers and students nationwide.

Periodic, high-profile incidents of school violence both in the United States and around the world have understandably resulted in public demand for increased school safety. This demand has, in turn, led to school safety policies and practices that have raced ahead of empirical research. This situation is now changing. In both the United States and across the world a continuing flow of government-funded research studies now make it possible for schools and communities to implement school safety programs that are founded on sound scientific research.
This 41-chapter handbook is the first attempt to comprehensively profile (on a worldwide basis) the emerging field of school violence and safety research and practice. It covers the full range of school violence from harassment and bullying to serious physical assault. It also examines existing school safety programs and the research and theories that guide them. Examinations of current issues and projections of future research and practice are embedded within the discussions. In short, it helps map the boundaries of this rapidly growing, multidisciplinary field of study. Key features of this important new book include:
*Balance of Breadth and Depth- Coverage includes 41 chapters that provide an in-depth profile of the following aspects of school violence and school safety: 1. foundations 2. assessment and measurement 3. prevention and intervention, and 4. implementation.
*Evidence-based Practice- Avoiding a one-size-fits-all approach to prevention and intervention, the focus throughout is on the application of evidence-based practice to those factors most commonly associatedwith school violence and safety.
*Implications for Practice- A critical component of each chapter is a summary table delineating the implications for practice of the foregoing research.
The "Handbook of School Violence and School Safety" is an indispensable reference volume for scholars, college administration faculty and graduate students, in-service school administrators and safety officers, policymakers, and academic libraries serving these groups. It is also appropriate for graduate level courses wholly or partly devoted to the study of school violence and school safety.

ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed childhood behavioral disorder. Moreover, many students receiving special education assistance are reported to have ADHD. Children with ADHD may experience significant school adjustment difficulties and achievement problems. Problem behaviors associated with attention deficits and hyperactivity often have a negative impact on the classroom, and, therefore, may compromise the learning environment for many, if not all, students. There is a critical need for school professionals to identify, assess, and treat students with ADHD.

Identifying, Assessing, and Treating ADHD at School brings science to practice, providing school professionals invaluable information to meet the needs of children with ADHD. This volume, designed as a practical, easy-to-use reference for school psychologists and other mental health and educational professionals:

  • Explains why school psychologists and their colleagues need to be prepared and able to identify and serve students with ADHD.
  • Identifies the prevalence, influences, and associated conditions.
  • Provides a review of screening, referral, and diagnostic assessment processes.
  • Offers guidance on conducting psychoeducational assessments.
  • Reviews evidence-based treatments.
  • Offers practical guidance on setting up programs that address individual and classroom issues.

School psychologists and other education and mental health professionals will find Identifying, Assessing, and Treating ADHD at School an exceptional resource in working to enhance the mental health and academic development of students.
