A comprehensive reference for addressing students' mental health needs
The ASCA National Model urges school counselors to know every student and broaden their knowledge of mental health disorders. With more students in need of mental health services than ever before, the timing is ideal for a guide that equips staff to meet these challenges. The School Counselor's Mental Health Sourcebook provides tools for keeping students on track, including:
- Methods for addressing many disorders, including anxiety and autism
- Intervention strategies that work
- Effective ways to collaborate with families from various cultures
Rick Auger describes the disorders and strategies with a balance of simplicity and clinical depth. This time-saving resource gives busy school counselors strategies for helping students succeed in school and in life.
