'The second edition of this highly regarded book retains the excellent qualities of the original volume. It is well written, easily understandable by the beginning graduate student, and yet clearly of value to the experienced practitioner. The book is highly practical and accessible, contains much hands-on information, and evaluates interventions in terms of their theoretical and empirical support. The important new chapter on social and emotional learning as part of a three-tiered intervention approach expands the discussion currently underway about response-to-intervention models.' - Caroline H. Wandle, PhD, Director, School Psychology Program, Department of Education, Tufts University, USA
'Merrell's writing reflects both his expertise and his ability to make the assessment and intervention process accessible to busy practitioners and students. The second edition incorporates important, current information related to prevention and early intervention, progress monitoring, and medications. The book also anticipates a range of common questions that practitioners may ask, including those related to gender composition in groups, diversity issues, and efficient data collection.' - Ellie Young, PhD, Counseling Psychology and Special Education Program, Brigham Young University, USA
'Depression and anxiety among children and adolescents are widely experienced yet frequently overlooked and undertreated, especially in schools. In this updated and highly useful guide, Merrell provides a practical, evidence-based approach to the assessment and treatment of these two disorders. A particularly useful addition to the second edition is the information presented on social and emotional learning and its utility for mental health promotion. This text fills a major need among mental health professionals working in schools, including school psychologists, counselors, and social workers.' - David N. Miller, PhD, Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology, University at Albany, State University of New York, USA
"This exceptionally useful book synthesizes essential knowledge regarding internalizing problems: what they are, how they can best be recognized and assessed, and which specific interventions can produce successful outcomes. Balancing the importance of treatment fidelity with client specificity and real-world practicality, Merrell masterfully integrates contemporary research with his clinical experience in school-based settings. He offers clear, intelligent guidelines for facilitating real change in children and for promoting their optimal social and emotional well-being. Both university trainers and practitioners will find this a superb resource for how to 'really' link assessment to intervention for internalizing problems at individual, family, and school-wide levels. Among the many strengths of this excellent book are the inclusion of social and emotional learning programs for promoting mental health, presented in just the right amount of detail, and the concise informational summary of medications, other treatments, and referral guidelines. I plan to use this text in my classes in child/adolescent interventions and in my own clinical practice. I highly recommend it!" - Harriet Cobb, EdD, Combined-Integrated Doctoral Program in Clinical and School Psychology, James Madison University, USA
