"Dr. Frisby focuses a bright light on issues that often remain obscured in a fog of polemics, deeply held convictions, and genuine concern for the plight of minority students. Meeting the Psychoeducational Needs of Minority Students cuts through this fog with intense, sharp, clear thinking and data-driven conclusions." —Jeffrey P. Braden, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, North Carolina State University "Going beyond superficial 'feel good' or 'feel bad' ideologies to probe what really makes a difference in meeting the needs of often underserved populations, Craig Frisby provides a comprehensive, rigorous, well-written, and entertaining (honest!) work that addresses the intersection of race, ethnicity, and education." —Betty Henry, PhD, School Psychologist, California School for the Blind "Dr. Frisby makes a perceptive and incisive assessment of much of the multicultural ideology currently propagated in professional psychology and education and directly confronts some of the major issues surrounding multiculturalism. Unlike many other critiques that have been proffered over the last few decades, however, Meeting the Psychoeducational Needs of Minority Students also provides many concrete solutions for how to begin changing the current milieu." —A. Alexander Beaujean, PhD, Associate Professor, Baylor University A practical, research-based guide to facilitating positive educational outcomes for racial, ethnic, and language minority students This timely book is written from the perspective of contemporary school psychology for a variety of school personnel, including school psychologists, teachers, guidance counselors, and administrators, with coverage of: The problem of quack multiculturalism Home and family Context for school learning General cognitive ability, learning, and instruction Testing and assessment School discipline and behavior management Crime, delinquency, and gangs School district resources

Education professionals are increasingly aware of the negative effect that exposure to trauma has on both the social and academic lives of children. Witnessing violence, being in a severe accident, or being physically injured are all things that can contribute to depression, anxiety, and even post-traumatic stress disorder in young people. Children who have experienced trauma are more likely to do worse in school or to miss more classes, and they have more interpersonal social problems that impede later success in life. Cognitive-Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS) is the first program designed to help school counselors and psychologists work with students to significantly reduce the symptoms associated with trauma. This easy-to-use, evidence-based guide uses cognitive-behavioral therapy-a practical, positive approach to modifying behavior-to foster and build skills children need as they cope with trauma and its aftermath. Developed in inner city schools by trained mental health clinicians, this early intervention program teaches schools to recognize signs of commonly experienced traumas and use techniques proven to have an impact on traumatic stress, depression, and anxiety. The CBITS manual includes complete plans for group and individual sessions with children, background information and session plans for educating parents and teachers about cognitive-behavioral therapy, and several pages of reproducible forms and worksheets.
