"Finally, someone has taken a look into today’s classrooms and clearly sees the need to address the issues that our teachers are facing on a daily basis... This book gives teachers a better understanding of the mental health issues that children face, and gives them practical strategies for dealing with not only the students, but with their families."
"An excellent text which provides much needed guidance for teachers on understanding various mental health issues from the perspective of educators and practical, well-researched strategies on steps to take to meet the needs of all children."
"This book is a wonderful resource for teachers, principals, counselors, parents, and students in developing a better understanding of mental health. This book will be a handy resource for those educators who work to understand the “whole” child they are educating."
"Most chapters present material in language readily understandable to educators. A helpful glossary helps to demystify unavoidable psychological jargon, which is printed in boldface throughout. Readers will appreciate the practical conventions of this text."
I was looking for something a little different than this for the course I am going to be teaching.
