Editorial Reviews


"This book provides practical and timely approaches to ensuring school safety and preventing violence. The interventions described are rooted in sound theory and research. From authors who are internationally known for their expertise on school safety, this volume presents cutting-edge knowledge on an important topic."--Edwin R. Gerler, Jr., EdD, Counselor Education Program, College of Education, North Carolina State University; Editor, Journal of School Violence

"Authored by two of the most respected experts in the field, this book draws on recent advances in the field of youth violence prevention. It provides hands-on, practical strategies sure to be of interest to mental health providers, educators, and other professionals interested in changing the odds for children and youth at risk for serious life adjustment problems. The book will also serve as a valuable text for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses that deal with evidence-based practices for preventing aggressive and violent behavior in children and youth."--Mark Katz, PhD, author of On Playing a Poor Hand Well

"Sprague and Walker have written a comprehensive yet commonsense book that addresses a most critical topic. For school administrators, counselors, teachers, and other school personnel responsible for creating safe and healthy school environments, this book is an absolute 'must read.' This book is replete with practical assessment tools, prevention programs, and intervention strategies that will be useful to all school personnel."--Michael H. Epstein, EdD, Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

"I have adopted this book as recommended reading in my course 'Crisis Management for Educational Leaders.' The book is quite good and should make a welcome addition to my graduate students' libraries; they will refer to it as future leaders and principals of schools."--Sam Blank, EdM, School of Education, Pace University

"Consistent with previous works in the Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools series, Safe and Healthy Schools is a winner....Safe and Healthy Schools is authored by two respected professionals. It is clear, comprehensive, and replete with practical tools. My hope is that the book will be extensively used by practicing school psychologists and, secondarily, a valuable text in our training programs."--NASP Communiqué
(NASP Communiqu� 2004-12-17)

"Exemplary in its concise presentation of practical, evidence-based prevention strategies for use by educators working to create safe and effective school environments....A highly readable text that is replete with usable materials such as questionnaires, surveys and other tools to guide prevention oriented discussions, planning, and actions....I recommend it highly, and truly hope it finds its way into the hands of educators in each of America's schools."--Attention Magazine
(Attention Magazine 2004-12-17)
