Overview

Currently, school psychiatrists are having to work more and more frequently with students with health problems and chronic illnesses; there is a strong need, therefore, for them to be adequately trained in the knowledge and impact of pediatric health disorders on children’s academic, social, and emotional progress and performance, all of which are critical components in the education system. This text will provide school psychologists with the most relevant and up-to-date information concerning conceptual models and applications of intervention and prevention strategies in pediatric school psychology. Instead of focusing on specific health disorders children face, it focuses on the more useful themes related to pediatric illnesses – adherence, school reintegration, post-traumatic stress, pain and medication management – and prevention strategies, such as developing multi-tiered programs, establishing and maintaining critical partnerships, and evaluating outcomes.

A major focus of this text is the development of leaders in the field of pediatric school psychology. The authors discuss in detail program development and evaluation, measurement development, grant writing, manuscript critiquing, and journal article preparation. "How to" guides, worksheets, and a variety of other materials for direct application to practice will be included on an accompanying CD.
