Description : With so few therapeutic outlets readily available to young people, schools have evolved into mental health centers for many students. Yet schools are hampered by limited access to resources needed to provide mental health promotion, prevention, and intervention services. Like its acclaimed predecessor, the Second Edition of the Handbook of School Mental Health offers ways for professionals to maximize resources, make and strengthen valuable connections, and attain more effective school-based services and programming. At the same time, the Handbook provides strategies and recommendations in critical areas, such as workforce development, interdisciplinary collaborations, youth/family engagement, consultation, funding, and policy concerns, summarizes the state of current research, and offers directions for further study. Chapters model best practices for promoting wellness and safety, early detection of emotional and behavioral problems, and school-based interventions for students with anxiety, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and other common challenges. In spotlighting this range of issues, the contributors have created a comprehensive game plan for advancing the field. Among the Handbook's topics: Pre-service training for school mental health clinicians. Cognitive-behavioral interventions for trauma in schools. Increasing parental engagement in school-based interventions. Models of psychiatric consultation to schools. Culturally competent behavioral and emotional screening. Bullying from a school mental health perspective. Prevention and intervention strategies related to a variety of mental health problems in schools. The Second Edition of the Handbook of School Mental Health is an essential reference for researchers, graduate students, and other professionals in child and school psychology, special and general education, public health, school nursing, occupational therapy, psychiatry, social work and counseling, educational policy, and family advocacy.

Description : Underscores the importance of viewing current nursing issues in the context of history Nursing practice has progressed beyond Florence Nightingale, and so has nursing history. This book delves into the intricacies of nursing history and its impact on contemporary nursing practice, education, and research. Nurses have always been political advocates for underprivileged and vulnerable populations during times of war, changing cultural landscapes, and social unrest. Today is no different. With historically significant case studies that ground the narrative, this book weaves the complex story of how the role of nurses has changed over time to adapt to new environments and needs, all the while retaining the key leadership and advocacy roles that have been inherent since the birth of the profession. Chapters examine key issues in contemporary nursing today, such as the care of diverse populations, rural health care, mental health care, neonatal health care, the nurse educator role, entry into practice issues, and more, and contextualize their evolution, showing what remains tried and true, what has been disproven, and what remains to be examined. The text illustrates how nursing history fits into the broader context of culture and society from the late 19th century to the present. Each chapter features critical thinking questions and extensive resources for all levels of nursing education. An accompanying instructor’s manual features guidelines for bringing historical elements into nursing curricula. Key Features: Embeds historical material into contemporary nursing practice, education, and research issues Demonstrates how contemporary nursing roles and issues evolved throughout history Includes numerous case studies from expert nursing historians Addresses the intersection of gender, race, and ethnicity as they impact health care today
