In writing Case studies in clinical and school psychology, the authors set out to achieve two objectives. Their first objective is to show how the gap between psychological theory and professional practice can be bridged for the areas of school and clinical psychology. Their second objective involves providing comprehensive case studies for training purposes. More specifically, the authors set out to show how psychological constructs can be used to derive meaning from assessment data and, in turn, to show how to translate these findings into meaningful intervention strategies.A substantial range of theoretical/clinical constructs are introduced but the overall emphasis of the book is on “how to do it.” That is, the authors focus their attention on the practical, down-to-earth concerns of professional practice and have provided a wealth of case material to illustrate their own approach for experienced practitioners as well as beginning and advanced graduate students in school and clinical psychology.
