Cognitive and Behavioral Interventions in the Schools: Integrating Theory and Research into Practice
Cognitive and Behavioral Interventions in the Schools is an essential resource for professionals and scientist-practitioners in child and school psychology, social work, behavioral therapy, psychotherapy and counseling, and educational psychology.
