Abstract: All of the reviewed books in this edition are relevant to an international dialogue between educational and health domains. Together they address a cluster of related themes relevant to teachers and parents, as well as to many other professionals working with children and young people. These themes include Social, Emotional and Behavioural Disorders (SEBD), Attachment Patterns at preschool and primary level, Anger expression and management, as well as individual differences in sensory processing. Cooper and Jacobs’ book offers a panoramic view of evidence to inform which approaches to promoting the educational engagement of students with SEBD, are most promising, with distinctive arguments therein in relation to labelling and interprofessional collaboration. Golding and her colleagues offer accounts of observational tools as resources for preschool and primary teachers, respectively, to identify attachment difficulties in children. This raises a myriad of issues for exploration. Irving Henry and her colleagues offer a resource for teachers and parents on anger, mainly within a cognitive-behavioural frame of reference. O’Connor identifies a range of theoretically informed, practical strategies for improving children’s concentration and learning through sensory processing. A common theme across most of these books is the need to go beyond a ‘one size fits all’ approach to more differentiated, interdisciplinary strategies for meeting children’s complex array of needs.
