CHRISTNER, Ray W., & MENNUTI, Rosemary B. (Eds.). School-Based Mental Health: A Practitioner's Guide to Comparative Practices. New York: Routledge, 2009. 456pp $44.95 (h).

This volume provides school-based practitioners with a comprehensive and comparative guide to the strategic interventions, therapeutic modalities, and treatment approaches that are most commonly and effectively used in educational settings. Three main sections of the text present a foundation for universal interventions, targeted interventions, and alternative interventions appropriate for use in schools. Unifying the chapters is a central case example, allowing the reader to see and evaluate the strengths and potential challenges of each technique in a familiar situation. This emphasis on case examples and the comparative structure of the volume will provide a level of hands-on and practical learning that is helpful for both students and mental health practitioners working in schools for the first time, and as a resource for more seasoned professionals who need to expand the tools at their disposal.
