This book provides an interdisciplinary perspective on theory, research, and applications in human behavior change. Chapters from clinical, developmental, and community psychology and education are united by common principles and an emphasis on culture and context. The contributions of Roland Tharp to each of these fields are highlighted. The roles of parents, teachers, peers, families, schools, and neighborhoods are explored. Topics include behavior therapy, child development and culture, community programs, delinquency prevention, youth mentoring, instructional conversation, school reform, teacher professional development, and culturally relevant instruction. For each topic, new research challenges are identified. This volume is recommended for a variety of courses in psychology and education.Buzz: Miguel again (nominating him from among those with hands up) Miguel: If you put it a little bit higher ita#39;s going to ... it might go along a bit like in a roller- coaster they go UP and they go DOWN but they dona#39;t crash through x xa GW: Yes, anbsp;...
