The book presents the participatory culture-specific intervention model, describes its foundations, and introduces it with illustrations of the authors’ work in the field; it also describes detailed procedures for implementing the model and discusses future directions in research along with questions raised by the model. The participatory culture-specific intervention model is an interdisciplinary model based on applied anthropology and school psychology. The authors emphasize the participatory nature of the model throughout the book and the importance of engaging the stakeholders (children, families, teachers, school staff, the larger community, etc.) as partners in the process. They also stress the importance of the application of ethnographic research methods and an ecological perspective as part of the model.
