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.

"Paul McCabe and Steven Shaw have provided an essential and comprehensive resource for school personnel. The prodigious three volumes are a critical presentation of the expansive range of student issues that confront educators and student support specialists."

Katy Olweiler, Counselor
Lakeside School, Seattle, WA

"This book focuses on educational implications of Tourette syndrome, biopolar disorder, mood disorders, eating disorders, and other issues, as well as pediatric medications and side effects. The well-organized chapters include research reviews, educational strategies, handouts, and discussion questions and are valuable resources for school psychologists, teachers, administrators, nurses, and others."

Patti L. Harrison, President, National Association of School Psychologists
Professor of School Psychology, The University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa

"Provides an excellent summary of neuropsychiatric disorders of children (e.g., ADHD, mood disorders, Tourette disorder, etc.) and their pharmacological treatment. What is unique is the discussion of the ongoing tension between psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic approaches to addressing these issues and the role of educators in supporting children with neuropsychiatric conditions. This book represents a well-rounded and even-handed approach to some very controversial issues and provides a variety of strategies that educators can use in addressing the psychiatric issues they face most often."
