Description - Handbook of Multicultural School Psychology by Giselle B. Esquivel

This comprehensive handbook offers a beautifully balanced view of the emerging field of multicultural school psychology. The opening section provides an historical overview of how the field has developed, and succeeding sections discuss multicultural issues related to consultation, instructional interventions, alternative assessment, academic assessment, vocational assessment, culturally sensitive counseling models, and working with families and special populations. Theory, research, and practice are integrated throughout. Key features of this exciting new book include: * Interdisciplinary Perspective - Many chapters are written by authors from different disciplines, all of whom have multicultural expertise. The last chapter provides summarizing commentaries written by leaders in different disciplines. * Scientist-Practitioner Focus - Evidence-based interventions for culturally and linguistically diverse students are provided for major competency areas such as consultation, counseling, and special programs (e.g., bilingual and multicultural education). * Assessment Focus - Multicultural and bilingual assessment issues are discussed in the chapters covering language, cognitive, personality, behavioral, neuropsychological, vocational, acculturational, and academic assessment. * Special Populations Focus - The needs of special populations such as culturally different parents, gifted and talented children, preschool children, migrant families, and children with low and high incidence learning disabilities are discussed in section VI. This book is appropriate for graduate courses and seminars dealing with multicultural school psychology. It is also a useful reference for researchers and practicing school psychologists and the libraries serving them.
