Virtual Clinical Excursions 3.0
for Nursing Care of Infants and Children CD-ROM
by Marilyn J. Hockenberry, and David Wilson

Virtual Clinical Excursions is a workbook/CD-ROM package that guides the student through a virtual hospital setting,
Pacific View Regional Hospital, in order to teach communication, documentation, assessment, and safe medication
administration. Its objective is to improve both clinical judgment and critical thinking skills through interaction with a
number of virtual patients.

Virtual Clinical Excursions was created to offer a hands-on learning experience in a risk-free environment. Each lesson
has a textbook reading assignment and activities based on “visiting” the patients in the hospital, which means that
students are actively engaged with the workbook activities, CD-ROM, and textbook throughout each lesson. The lessons
in the workbook complement the content in the textbook and provide a perfect environment in which students may
“practice” what they are learning in the text.

Tools for Transition in Early Childhood
A Step-by-Step Guide for Agencies, Teachers, and Families
by Beth S. Rous, and Rena A. Hallam

For young children with and without disabilities, positive outcomes depend on smooth, effective transitions between and
within early intervention programs, preschool programs, and public school programs. Now there’s a how-to guide that
helps professionals across programs work together to make these transitions happen. Co-authored by top expert Beth
Rous, this book gives readers a step-by-step model that’s been field tested across the country and shaped by feedback
from state and local agencies. Professionals from different early childhood programs will learn to collaborate as they:

1. Establish a clear vision of what transition should look like
2. View transition from a general education and special education perspective
3. Set up a formal interagency structure to ensure effective teamwork
4. Make decisions as a group while avoiding conflict
5. Draw up a work plan that helps the team set goals and track outcomes
6. Guide children and families as they adapt to new environments, both on a daily basis and over time
7. Develop written materials to clarify roles and responsibilities for teachers, staff, and families
8. Case examples and question-and-answer sections in each chapter make the strategies easy to implement. And with
approximately 25 photocopiable forms and sample letters, every phase of the planning process is easier - structuring the
meetings, determining responsibilities, making decisions, involving families, and evaluating progress. An essential guidebook
for program directors, administrators, and all their staff members, this book helps programs coordinate their services and
plan transitions that ensure young children’s school readiness.

Prevention, The Science and Art of Promoting
Healthy Child and Adolescent Development
by John G. Borkowski, and Chelsea M. Weaver

Solving problems before they become a national crisis benefits entire at-risk populations and saves time, money, and
resources. Effective prevention programs can make these benefits a reality - and with this landmark book from foremost
authority John Borkowski, professionals will see what types of prevention efforts really work. The first and only synthesis
of prevention research and methodology, this timely volume examines programs targeting eight of today’s most pressing
problems that affect infants, children, and youth, including:

1. Child maltreatment
2. Youth violence
3. Childhood developmental delays
4. Substance abuse
5. Risky sexual behavior
6. Marital conflict and divorce

Researchers, students, administrators, and policymakers will:
1. Closely examine each prevention project, including its structure, scope, target population, methodology, and results
2. Consider the characteristics of successful prevention programs
3. Envision model prevention programs for each of the eight problems

Through these thorough, multifaceted explorations of successful programs, readers will see the interplay between the
science of research and the art of practice - and appreciate the profound difference prevention efforts can make in the lives
of children and families. Based on over a decade of research and best practices, this is an invaluable resource for anyone
who has a part in shaping the future of intervention and prevention programs.
