Together, School Rampage Shootings and Other Youth Disturbances and its accompanying CD provide a complete toolkit for using early preventative interventions with elementary-school age children. In ten thoughtful, clearly written chapters, both new and experienced practitioners will find a wealth of research- and evidence-based techniques that link personal child and childhood environmental conditions to a number of symptoms, disturbances, and disorders in youth or adulthood, including the expression of rampage violence. In the second part of this indispensable collection – the accompanying CD – practitioners will find worksheets and handouts that translate useful techniques into reality and are sure to make any practice come alive.
