School Social Work: A Direct Practice Guide is a text for courses in school social work. It covers the foundations of working with children and adolescents in schools, applying practice knowledge to the special school and population settings. The main goal of this text is to a provide hands on and practical experience for students studying to become school social workers. Each chapter will review a basic concept and then use two in-depth activities to apply the concepts to practice. It will be closely aligned with the EPAS standards and will have a strong focus on evidence based interventions, critical thinking, and diversity. The books will cover the following topics: Typical day in the life of a school social work; Introduction, special topics, and skills and techniques; special education; collaboration and school consultation; diversity; current issues in education; policy and evaluation; case studies and global issues

<p>Biographical Information</p><p>I worked as a school social worker for 27 years in elementary, junior high and high schools. After that period, I was a therapist in a school for emotionally disturbed children for 3 years. This was a high school situation and most of the students were classified as emotionally disturbed for educational purposes. They ran the gamut from acting out behaviors to severely withdrawn. Suicidal attempts and hospitalization had occurred for many of these students. After that experience, I decided to teach at the college level in the hope of contributing to the social work profession. I taught as a visiting professor, adjunct professor, senior lecturer and assistant professor (tenure track). As a senior lecturer, I taught at Columbia University School of Social Work in New York. My teaching specialty has been in the area of school social work and direct practice. I taught the school course as an advanced practice course in the fall, 2005, then took a tenure track position at Dominican College (Blauvelt, NY). I was able to teach at NYU (Rockland Campus) as an adjunct during this time. I taught school social work there are well. At Dominican, I was field director and taught macro level courses. I am very aware of the needs of social work interns in the schools and have therefore endeavored to add my text as an essential auxiliary tool. Presently, I’m an adjunct professor at Columbia University.<a name="_GoBack"></a></p><p></p><p style="TEXT-ALIGN: justify; LINE-HEIGHT: 12pt">In 2006, I had a book published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers, London, England. The name of the book is: <b><i>When a Family Pet Dies: A Parents’ Guide to Helping their Children with Loss. </i></b><i></i>Its purpose is to help parents deal with their children’s needs when they lose their pet. <i></i></p><br /><br />
