The School Shooter

RRP $13.99

Why would a student bring a weapon to school and without any explicable reason open fire on fellow students and teachers? Are school shooters angry? Are they crazy? Is their motive revenge? Hatred for the victims? A hunger for attention? The origins of human violence are complex. Thinkers, historians, and scientists have explored the issue for centuries, but answers remain elusive. The roots of a violent act are multiple, intricate, and intertwined. The mix of factors varies according to the individual and the circumstances. Understanding violence after it has occurred is difficult enough. Trying to assess a threat and keep it from being carried out is even more of a challenge. This monograph presents a systematic procedure for threat assessment and intervention. The model is designed to be used by educators, mental health professionals and law enforcement agencies. Obviously, the same events that led the National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime (NCAVC) to this subject have also led school administrators and law enforcement officials across the country to consider and develop their own policies and procedures for dealing with threats or acts of violence in schools. This model is offered in the hope that it may help refine and strengthen those efforts. Its fundamental building blocks are the threat assessment standards outlined in Chapter II, which provide a framework for evaluating a spoken, written, and symbolic threat, and the four-pronged assessment approach, which will be described in Chapter III and provides a logical, methodical process to examine the threatener and assess the risk that the threat will be carried out. This model is not a "profile" of the school shooter or a checklist of danger signs pointing to the next adolescent who will bring lethal violence to a school. Those things do not exist. Although the risk of an actual shooting incident in any one school is very low, threats of violence are potentially a problem in any school. Once a threat is made, having a fair, rational, and standardized method of evaluating and responding to threats is critically important.


A School-linked Services

RRP $108.00

The evidence-based strategies in this volume close the achievement gap among students from all sociological backgrounds. Designed according to local needs assessments, they provide the services, programs, initiatives, and relationships that are crucial for children's success in school and life.

These practices and programs include afterschool and summer sessions, early-childhood education, school-linked health and mental health services, family engagement, and youth leadership opportunities. This book addresses the policy and funding requirements that help these partnerships thrive and offers effective counterarguments against those who would question their value. The text describes strategies that work in both rural and urban contexts and includes a chapter evaluating school-community partnerships across the world. Because it involves collaborations across professions and organizations, the book's interdisciplinary approach will appeal to those in social work, education, psychology, public health, counseling, nursing, and public policy.


Clinical Simulations For School Leader Development

RRP $262.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

This companion manual is designed for school leaders participating in clinical simulations. While it provides all necessary information to situate leaders in a simulated environment, it does not provide the additional materials necessary to successfully train standardized individuals, nor does it outline the broader logistical steps for implementing clinical simulations. School leader educators or representatives from school districts seeking to facilitate clinical simulations should consult the broader primary text: Beyond Tears, Tirades, and Tantrums: Clinical Simulations for School Leader Development .


Designing Quiet Structures

RRP $381.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

This book is the first of its kind. It provides the reader with a logical and highly quantitative means of including noise as a parameter in the early design stages of a machine or structure. The unique and unified methodology builds upon the familiar disciplines of acoustics, structural dynamics and optimization. It also exemplifies the art of simplification - the essence of all good engineering design. =
Strategies for designing quiet structures require extensive analytical and experimental tools. For computing the sound power from complex structures the authors recommend a new 3-D, lumped parameter formulation. Not only this, they also include, on diskette, an original numerical program POWER. This fully developed, user-friendly program can be applied generally to noise-control-by-design problems. Detailed instructions for running the application are given in the appendix as well as several sample problems to help the user get started. =
The authors also describe a new instrument: a specially developed resistance probe used to measure a structure=92s acoustic surface resistance. As an example, the procedure is outlined for measuring the valve cover of an internal combustion engine. Indeed, throughout the book the reader is presented with actual experiments, numerical and physical that they can replicate in their own laboratory.
This is a must-have book for engineers working in industries that include noise control in the design of a product. Its practical and didactic approach also makes it ideally suited to graduate students.
Key Features
* First text covering the design of quiet structures
* Written by two of the leading experts in the world in the area of noise control
* Strong in its integration of structural dynamics, acoustics, and optimization theory
* Accompanied by a computer program that allows the computation of sound power
* Presents numerous applications of noise-control-by-design methods as well as methods for enclosed and open spaces
* Each chapter is supported by homework problems and demonstration experiments


Working With Troubled Youth In Schools

RRP $274.99

This work presents a practical guide to creating effective, school-based responses to the difficult problem of dealing with troubled youth in schools, based on an "ecological" approach to collaboration among school professionals and community members. The two themes of "prevention" and "connection" pervade the practices that are described in this timely contribution.
