The Educator's Guide to Mental Health Issues in the Classroom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An estimated 20% of students have an emotional, behavioral, or mental disorder. Teachers are often the first to notice these problems — and with this reader-friendly guide, they'll have the information they need to help create effective learning environments for children and adolescents and collaborate effectively with mental health providers. Along with a detailed overview of the mental health system and the different types of mental health professionals, education professionals will get separate chapters on 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
  • 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 book, common medications used to treat mental health disorders, and support organizations.

Equally useful for preservice and in-service general and special educators — and for the mental health providers who partner with them — this important book will prepare readers to understand students with mental health disorders and help improve their chances for social and academic success.

Book News Annotation:

Intended for teachers in both general and special education classes, this guide begins with an overview of the mental health system, then discusses specific issues like hyperactivity, autism, Asperger syndrome, psychotic disorders, substance abuse, eating disorders, anxiety, problems with peers, adjustment, and oppositional defiant disorders. For each disorder, a chapter describes its characteristics, the ways it might manifest, diagnosis, and intervention and treatment. It also offers practical advice for dealing with a student suffering from the problem. Case studies appear throughout, illustrating the collaborative role of educators in the mental health system. Contributors include mental health professionals and educators.
