School-Based Interventions to Address the Mental Health Needs of Children and Youth - Presented by Dr. Richard Van Acker
It is estimated that one in five children in the typical general education classroom has a diagnosable mental health disorder. Over half of the people who will develop mental health disorders will show symptoms prior to age 14. Yet most educators and related services personnel have been provided little or no information related to children’s mental health. This presentation will discuss some of the common mental health disorders found in the school-age population and discuss effective approaches to engaging these students within the educational setting. Information will also be provided to assist in the effective management of their challenging behavior – including crisis behavior. Participants will become familiar with the concept of trauma informed care.
