Additional Book Details

Fostering Child and Adolescent Mental Health in the Classroom provides educators and school personnel with a thorough, readable guide to some of the most common mental health issues they are likely to confront in the classroom. Editor Raymond J. Waller offers pre-service and in-service educators strategic tools to help take the proper steps toward addressing the mental health issues of their students.    

Key Features:

Encourages effective collaboration between teachers and mental health professionals: While most books related to children′s mental health are written for mental health personnel, this book offers strategies that teachers can use in their classrooms to help children with mental health issues. The chapters in this book are written by experts in the field and address contemporary, common mental health issues experienced by children and adolescents.
Gives teachers confidence in having a positive impact: Educators are often among the most influential people in the lives of children and this book offers helpful and practical roles for educators in promoting mental health in all children. Real-life vignettes demonstrate how various mental health problems may manifest in the classroom and how these problems can be addressed effectively in the school setting.
Helps identify mental health problems in the classroom: Few teachers are specifically taught to identify student behaviors that may potentially result in severely reduced functioning or risk of harm to self or others. This text will assist educators in recognizing symptoms of crisis and offer practical suggestions rather than treatment or diagnosis, which is beyond the purview of most educators.  Intended Audience:
This is an excellent supplementary textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on Classroom Management. It can also be used in a variety of courses in Education, Special Education, Educational Psychology, School Psychology, School Counseling, and School Social Work.
