Product description


"A remarkable book detailing a wide spectrum of childhood emotional, behavioral, and mental disorders and how they impact the classroom. Each chapter contains a wealth of information about the particular disorder together with an array of practical strategies to address the problem both in and outside the classroom." --Robert Brooks, Ph.D.


Teachers are often the first to notice students with problems - and with this guide, they will have the information they need to help create effective learning environments for children and adolescents and collaborate effectively with mental health providers. It includes an overview of the mental health system and the different types of mental health professionals. Chapters cover 11 specific mental health issues, each describing characteristics of the disorder, ways the disorder might be manifested, the process for diagnosing the disorder, types of intervention and treatment, and practical guidelines on working with students who have the disorder. Educators will also find specific strategies for building collaborative partnerships with mental health professionals and families, case studies illustrating successful collaboration, and appendices of definitions, DSM-IV-TR criteria for various disorders discussed in the text, common medications used to treat mental health disorders, and support organizations.
