The educator′s go-to reference for important psychiatric health topics!

Increasingly, educators are called upon to address children′s medical as well as mental health needs within the school setting. Based on a critical review of current research, this concise, highly practical volume outlines the most relevant psychiatric health issues for educators today.

Written for school psychologists, counselors, administrators, and teachers, this easy-to-understand resource covers:

  • Neuropsychiatric conditions that commonly affect children, including Tourette syndrome, bipolar/mood disorders, and anxiety disorder
  • Psychopharmacology, including the use of atypical antipsychotics and autism, the treatment of tardive dyskinesia in children, the medical management of ADHD, polypharmacy prescription practice, and side effects of common health medications
  • Dietary control and supplement use that includes dietary treatments for autism, identification and treatment of eating disorders, and use of steroids in adolescence

Featuring case studies, strategies for educators, discussion questions, glossaries, and handouts, Psychiatric Disorders provides valuable information to practitioners involved in providing differentiated instruction and educational accommodations, offering special education services, collaborating with families, working with the community, or influencing policy.
