Now in a revised and updated second edition, this highly informative volume provides empirically based models for intervening with students at risk for aggression and protecting school safety overall. Current advances in research and practice are reflected in the book's detailed coverage of effective intervention approaches at the student, school, and system levels. Presented are strategies for reducing violence risks in Pre-K-12 classrooms, managing problem behavior in a range of settings and among diverse student populations, conducting academic and curriculum interventions, developing crisis management and safety plans, building successful partnerships with families and outside agencies, and more. Contributors include leading scientist-practitioners as well as experienced educators and policymakers. Special features of the second edition include new chapters on legal issues and on creating a climate for change in the schools.

Jane Close Conoley, PhD, is Dean of Education and Human Development and Professor of Educational Psychology at Texas A&M University. Dr. Conoley has served as a consultant to mental health and educational agencies around the world, working to increase safety and academic achievement for children and resilience and job satisfaction for adults in those settings. Her research has centered on change processes that are related to increasing the acceptability of behavioral and mental health interventions in complex organizations. Arnold P. Goldstein, PhD (1933-2002), was Professor of Special Education at Syracuse University, Director of the New York State Task Force on Juvenile Gangs, a member of the American Psychological Association Commission on Youth Violence, and a member of the Council of Representatives of the International Society for Research on Aggression. Dr. Goldstein developed three influential approaches to prosocial skills training: skillstreaming, aggression replacement training, and the Prepare Curriculum. Reflecting his role as Director of the Syracuse University Center for Research on Aggression, much of his research and teaching centered on helping youngsters replace antisocial, aggressive behaviors with constructive, alternative means of seeking life satisfaction and effectiveness.
