Much has been written about special education and about inclusive education, but there have been few attempts to pull these two concepts and approaches together. This book does just that: sets special education within the context of inclusive education. It posits that to include, effectively, all children with special educational needs in schools requires an integration of both concepts, approaches, and techniques. It has never been more timely to publish a book that helps professionals who work with schools, such as psychologists, special education professionals, and counselors, to identify effective practices for children with special needs and provide guidelines for implementing these in inclusive schools.

Parental participation has long been recognized as a positive factor in children’s education. Research consistently shows that parents’ contributions to their children’s education lead to improvements in their academic and behavioral outcomes, from elementary through middle and secondary school. Recognizing the critical role of school psychologists in this equation, Parental Involvement in Childhood Education clearly sets out an evidence-based rationale and blueprint for building parental involvement and faculty awareness. The author’s starting point is the gap between the ideals found in the literature and the reality of parental involvement in schools. An ecological analysis identifies professional, institutional, and societal factors that keep schools and parents distant. Methods for evaluating parental involvement are detailed, as is a model for developing and maintaining strong parental relationships at the instructor, school, and education system level, with an emphasis on flexible communication and greater understanding of parents’ needs. This empirically sound coverage offers readers: A detailed understanding of obstacles to parental involvement. An evidence-based model for parental participation. A three-nation study of parental involvement practices in schools. Guidelines for implementing parental involvement activities and initiatives. A review of effective communication strategies with parents. Analysis of key interpersonal skills for effective work with parents. Parental Involvement in Childhood Education is essential reading for practitioners and researchers in school psychology and counseling, social work, and educational psychology, whether they work directly with schools or in providing training for teachers and other professionals who work with children and their parents.

Head teachers and all those concerned for the pastoral care of school pupils will find a wealth of advice on issues such as traumatic incidents and disaster recovery plans, bullying, sibling rivalry, anxiety and sexuality. The reader is allowed to eavesdrop on the consultations of school counsellors. There is a particularly useful chapter on setting up and maintaining a school counselling service, which sets out the questions to be faced in advance by the Head and by the counsellor. I commend the book very warmly' - Stephen Baldock, High Master, St Paul's School, Barnes `Counselling in Schools is an excellent resource for students in training, professionals already working in schools and those thinking of setting up a counselling service' - Heather Jones, Head teacher, Yardleys School, Birmingham Counselling in Schools is a practical, contemporary guide to providing effective counselling support within school settings.

They emphasize the need for counsellors to be resourceful and creative in their approach and stress the reality that change is always an inevitable feature of working in schools. Written from a systemic and solution-focused perspective and illustrated throughout with vivid case studies, the book examines: - the need for school-based counselling services - the range of problems with which pupils present - legal issues involved in counselling children - the role and skills of the school counsellor - specific challenges faced in school settings The book provides a practical toolkit for counsellors, including advice on setting up a new counselling service, a framework for evaluating the service and accepted guidelines on key issues such as confidentiality and providing access to records.

Includes CD-Rom 'In light of Every Child Matters agenda and of the current emphasis on giving children a voice in important decision making situations, this book could be a valuable tool'- Educational Psychology in Practice 'This is a great little book designed to help children between the ages nine and 12 to develop good relationships with each other and with other people... [It] includes clear guidance on ways in which children themselves can raise the self-esteem and social status of their less popular peers through listening, talking and understanding others' - SENCO Update Ruth and Tina draw upon their experiences to provide a peer support programme that encourages inclusive prosocial processes for young people aged nine to twelve. Drawing upon the philosophy of a Circle of Friends, they have developed a six-step programme that harnesses the skills of popular young people to help others who may have low social status. The Talk Time programme builds on the message that relationships are what matter most and emphasizes that relationships happen through listening, talking and understanding others. The book provides all the resources needed including: • facilitators' notes • pupil resources • letter to parents • staff briefing sheet • pupil certificate. The programme is intended to be run for a group of eight to twelve pupils once a week during lunch times for one term. The aim is to help all group members and hopefully carry over to improve the social climate of the classroom and create a positive and cooperative working environment. Ruth MacConville is the Head of the Special Educational Needs service, based in Ealing. Tina Rae is a Senior Educational Psychologist based in Hillingdon.
