In today's classroom, effective prevention and intervention are more critical than ever. An exciting new first edition delivers a collaborative "how to" guide for both preventive and intervention-oriented counseling in school settings. MENTAL HEALTH INTERVENTIONS FOR SCHOOLS offers up-to-the-minute coverage of the most common mental health or psychosocial/emotional issues and disorders facing schoolchildren and youth--issues that can negatively impact their learning and long-term educational development. The text features the work of some of the most highly regarded counselor educators in the field. Each chapter provides a solid overview of a mental health concern and then focuses on school- and research-based actions that are preventive and intervention oriented as well as proven effective in school settings.
