This handbook focuses on how a school psychologist can operate and create change within the educational system instead of focusing solely on the diagnosis and treatment of an individual. Chapters include applications of structural modelling to school psychology research problems, applications of quantitative research strategies to problems, diagnosis for treatment planning in schools, CBA and other performance-based assessment strategies, and evaluation and treatment of TBI in schools.
