Our children spend a significant amount of time in school, working to develop the skills they need to succeed in the “real” world. But more and more, they face social and emotional challenges that can't be effectively addressed during school hours. Community Interventions to Create Change in Children reflects the efforts by psychologists to work outside the classroom, combining research with action to produce community-based interventions that address the concerns children struggle with every day: bullying and victimization, prejudice, cross-cultural friendships, poverty, and homelessness.

Community Interventions to Create Change in Children presents varied interventions, methodologies, and practices with diverse groups of children. Qualitative and quantitative methodologies are used with accompanying case studies as psychologists interact with children in settings as varied as public parks, summer camps, and Kid's College, a Chicago-based program that promotes positive race relations. The book includes articles on:
  • effective mentoring practices
  • traditional behavioral reinforcement with homeless children
  • survival skills for urban youth
  • cross-cultural friendships
  • prejudicial attitudes and behaviors
  • and much more!
Community Interventions to Create Change in Children is an essential resource for psychologists, educators, counselors, and social workers committed to making a difference in the lives of children.
