About the Author

JoAnn Jarolmen worked as a school social worker for 27 years in elementary, junior high, and high schools and was a therapist in a school for emotionally disturbed children for 3 years. She has been a visiting professor, adjunct professor, senior lecturer, and assistant professor at a number of colleges and universities, including Columbia University School of Social Work, New York University (Rockland Campus) and Dominican College. Her teaching specialty is in the area of school social work and direct practice. She is the author of When a Family Pet Dies: A Parents' Guide to Helping their Children with Loss (Jessica Kingsley Publishers, London, England; 2006).


Cyberbullying, program development for bullying prevention, the Olweus anti-bullying program, PFLAG, conflict resolution and peer mediation are among the topics discussed in School Social Work: A Practical Guide. Researchers will be especially interested in the sections on innovations from abroad. Countries covered include: Canada, Ghana, Japan, Korea, Germany, Hungary, Malta, and the Scandinavian countries. Current problems faced by the world's children are also discussed. Solution focused therapy designed specifically for the schools is one of the guiding frameworks. On the practical side, substance abuse screening tools, a suicide screening tool, survey material, and guidelines for work on behalf of sexual minority students are provided. This book is an much-needed addition to the literature that will be useful for school social workers, social work educators, and researchers on social work with children and youths. -- Katherine S. van Wormer - University of Northern Iowa
