He is the author of Skills Training for Children with Behavior Problems, Revised Edition: A Parent and Therapist Guidebook, and has coauthored articles in peer-reviewed journals.

Steven V. Schnell, PhD, has many years of experience working with children exhibiting aggression and conduct problems as a clinical child psychologist at North Psychology Clinic in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.

'This very user-friendly volume provides a superb, up-to-date overview of the research base and clinical procedures for intervening with childhood aggression and conduct problems. It will serve as an excellent resource for professionals working in mental health, social welfare, and school settings. Moreover, use of this volume in graduate programs in social work, psychology, counseling, and education will make an important contribution to educating the next generation of professionals in the use of evidence-based best practices.' - Scott W. Henggeler, Medical University of South Carolina; 'Two of the key strengths of this book are the text's provision of the best discussion at this time of the range of empirically supported interventions [and its] innovative and creative effort to abstract common content elements from empirically supported intervention programs... Bloomquist and Schnell have approached this task in a highly systematic and thoughtful manner, and the result is outstanding.' - from the Foreword by John E. Lochman, The University of Alabama
