Problem-Solving Parent Conferences in Schools presents a Problem-solving Parent Conference (PPC) model that integrates and applies empirically-supported systemic and behavioral intervention strategies to coordinated home-school interventions for student behavioral and social-emotional concerns. Though today’s schools seek to further understand student behaviors from ecological and systemic perspectives, there are limited resources available on how to effectively collaborate with families—a key social-environmental context. This unique book engages parents and teachers in a five-stage protocol towards more effective student support. These evidence-based, change-oriented approaches will be essential for graduate students in school psychology, school social work, and school counseling programs; in teacher preparation; and in any related course focused on parents and families in school settings. Its resources are also critical for mental health practitioners who work with children, adolescents, families, and schools.
