Summary "Many excellent mental health programs are proven to meet various needs in children, and schools are an ideal place to implement such programs. Yet school psychologists often face challenges when implementing them. They have to secure support from people in authority as well as key stakeholders, provide effective training and supervision, ensure that organizational structures support the implementation, and make appropriate adaptations to suit the specific context while also maintaining fidelity to core program components. In this book, Susan Forman explains how to successfully implement mental health programs in schools. She summarizes the research on implementation science and, most important, translates it into practice for schools. Change agents will find practical, research-based guidance for every aspect of implementation"--Publicity materials. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)
