Book Description :

`This publication is a valuable and timely contribution to the current investigations into the behaviours of children and young people that impact on their emotional health. The book will serve as a practical guide for schools addressing the problem as they see it, the case studies vividly illustrating situations and behaviours that teachers will readily recognise. This is a well structured book. [It] deserves to be read and can serve as a source of information on how various behaviours have been defined, investigated and addressed. It will be of value to any school, much more than a topical or interesting read but as the basis of an institutional response to a problem seriously affecting educational achievement for individuals and schools. It would particularly serve as a stimulus to in-service training for teachers and support staff' - George Varnava, Young Minds Magazine 'Each of the authors has considerable relevant expertise so the text is rich both in research data and examples, including case studies, from their experience. Readers will find a wealth of practical advice and encouragement that is balanced by the acknowledgement of the limitations of individual interventions and the potential costs, overt and hidden, of each one. A whole-school approach is advocated and exemplified, including schools that have considered the needs of the staff' - Child and Adolescent Mental Health `This work would be of use throughout all age ranges as the different problems and strategies are very easily accessible with a lot of proven, practical support. Professor Cowie and her colleagues have produced a valuable tool for use in all schools on both micro and macro level' - Education Review `The book is an impressive and useful handbook of advice and resources. More than that, because it presents so much evidence, it's able to show, rather than tell, how schools can improve life for their pupils and teachers' - Gerald Haigh, TES Friday Magazine `This book is recommended for the wealth of practical information it contains about strategies that can help young people in distress' - Youth Studies Australia Secondary school is the place where young people are most constrained, observed and challenged to develop. This is not necessarily a stress free process, either for the young person, or for teachers and parents. This book describes behaviours, both disruptive and secretive, which indicates emotional distress. It looks at both the risk factors and the protective factors involved in emotional health, and addresses the impact of issues such as bullying, social exclusion, loss and bereavement. The authors show what schools can do to develop practices grounded in knowledge about the mental health issues which relate to young people. In an accessible way, they present a range of strategies which practitioners have shown to be effective. They focus especially on methods and policies, which have been scientifically evaluated, or which are considered best practice. Issues and interventions are illustrated throughout with case studies drawn from the authors' own practice and experience. Each of the authors has a long-standing interest in ways of creating supportive environments to prevent distress and to facilitate resilience in the young. This book is essential reading for secondary school teachers, educational psychologists, education welfare officers and all those with pastoral care responsibilities.

Book Description :

"This book challenges the concept of wellbeing as applied to children, particularly in a school-based context. Taking a post-structural approach, it suggests that wellbeing should be understood, and experiences revealed, at the level of the subjective child. This runs counter to contemporary accounts that reduce children's wellbeing to objective lists of things that are needed in order to live well. This book will be useful for academics and practitioners working directly with children, and anyone interested in children's wellbeing."--Publisher's website.

"This text will be targeted to both active health educators, as well as students and instructors in health education teacher preparation programs. Per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are roughly 118,500 health educators in the United States, with a 16% increase in jobs projected through 2026. This includes health educators working with audiences outside of K-12, which is the segment of the health education community we are targeting with this publication. On the academic side, the number of health education majors and minors can be difficult to pinpoint, as these are sometimes nested within public health programs. Within these programs, there are unlikely to be courses focused exclusively on SEL, but this would be an appropriate fit for courses focused on the health education curriculum, instruction, and assessment"--

This work develops the concept of ‘emotional health’ as the presence of a bio-psycho-socio-cultural balance. Modern lives contain constant social, political and economic challenges, as well as ecological emergencies. All of these can be causes of stress, leading to poor health and mental illness. This book serves to build the bridge between medical treatments with alternative and complementary medicine, as well as therapies, in order to highlight a bio-psycho-socio-cultural approach which can help us to find new solutions to these health problems. This book introduces the concept of planetary health, develops the concept of ‘bio-psycho-socio-cultural balance’, and defines the concepts which make up this balance.

Book Description :

Approximately 12 percent of children in American schools have been identified as disabled in ways that interfere with their capacity to learn. Far from static, the field of childhood disabilities is changing and evolving as the understanding of disabling conditions is contested within and across disciplines. Parents of children with disabilities often find themselves in new, lonely, and bewildering territory, presented with conflicting advice and treatment options. This book is designed to help. Childhood Psychological Disorders: Current Controversies was compiled to disentangle contemporary controversial issues, contributing to a fuller understanding of the needs of children with disabilities and the families raising them. The book focuses on social, behavioral, and psychological dimensions of childhood disability. Specific, topical essays highlight the current state of knowledge and the nature of opposing arguments among specialists in various disciplines. The book opens with a consideration of the historical and social context of child disability, addressing the evolution of disability concepts and the changing nature of disability as a social/cultural phenomenon. Disability's impact on the family system and schools is explored, too, from the vantage point of educators, children, and their parents and siblings. Subsequent chapters examine such diagnoses as early onset bipolar disorder, autism, ADHD, the educational label Emotionally Handicapped/Disturbed (EH/D), food allergies and related disorders, and Gender Identity Disorder (GID). Alberto M. Bursztypi, PhD, is professor of school psychology and special education at Brooklyn College, Brooklyn, NY, and professor of urban education at The Graduate Center, City University of New York. Dr. Bursztyn edited the The Praeger Handbook of Special Education and is a coauthor of Rethinking Multicultural Education: Case Studies in Cultural Transition.

Book Description :

Schools are now seen as being one of the key agents which can help redress society's most fundamental problems, create more cohesive communities and promote citizenship and a sense of social conscience in the young. Promoting Mental, Emotional and Social Health: A Whole School Approach provides a clear and practical overview of ways in which mainstream schools can promote the health of all those who work and learn in them. Supported by the latest new evidence from the UK and Europe as well as findings from the USA, it outlines and examines: * evidence that social and emotional learning and academic achievement can go hand in hand and that the same key factors underlie both happy and effective schools * the areas of school life that are the key to promoting social and affective health, including relationships with families and the community, management and the curriculum * the competencies that we all need to become more emotionally literate and relate to more effectively.

Book Description :

Schools can play an important role in addressing the unmet mental health needs of youth by potentially increasing access to care in a cost-effective manner. This venue provides unparalleled access to youth and exemplifies a single setting through which the majority of children can be reached. This very timely issue provides a much-needed analysis of the types of situations in which schools can and must address the mental health needs of their students, and the methodology for doing so. With an eye towards current technologies (articles cover telepsychiatry and web-based interventions), authors review school-based interventions for students suffering from post-traumatic stress-syndrome, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression, ADHD, psychoses, substance abuse, and other disorders. Of special interest are the articles covering bullying (including internet bullying) and mobilizing a crisis team after student death.

`As someone with an interest in emotional literacy and in developing emotional literacy work in schools, I found this book an impressive resource. I would recommend it for those interested in this area, those working within schools on emotional literacy, and for school staff interested in developing their schools as emotionally literature organizations' - Debate `This is an authoritative and scholarly book that does not attempt to offer a simple fix-it solution but one that should lead to an informed and workable approach that will address the needs and circumstances of individual schools as such . I would recommend it as an essential read for anyone contemplating the research or promotion of emotional literacy in school' - Special Children `There is much to encourage exploration by schools, educators and managers in an informed way. Helpful appendices list experienced agencies schools may approach in their work on emotional well-being'- Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties `The book provides a useful guide to ways in which school policies for promoting emotional wellbeing can be developed' - Times Educational Supplement, Teacher `This book is written in a refreshingly well-balanced style and it deserves a similarly even-handed review. Katherine Weare never exaggerates a point or pretends to have found the Holy Grail. Instead; each argument is carefully counter pointed by a caveat' - Nurturing Potential `This is a handbook for teachers and LEAs with clearly headed sections, useful tables and list of resources and contacts. There are helpful suggestions for auditing emotional literacy in schools, deciding whether to use off-the-shelf programmes, tailoring programmes to the school's own needs, and working with the wider community' - The Psychology of Education Review 'Visionary and easy to read. This vision resides in the authors' convictions about the vital role schools can play in developing and widening the literacy of emotions... worth reading... opens up a picture of what can achieved in schools in the best interests of the children' - Young Minds Magazine `Katherine Weare brings a good track record to this useful handbook. The full list of contacts, sources of support and resources and the useful bibliography are clearly a product of her comprehensive knowledge of the field in UK and beyond. They provide a solid platform for future researches' - Journal of In-Service Education Emotional literacy refers to our ability to understand and use information about our own and others' emotional states, with skill and competence. It is increasingly accepted in schools, and this book shows how it is central to mainstream education. The author defines concepts and terms in ways that make sense to practitioners, outlines the scientific evidence behind the concept, explores ways in which schools can become more emotionally literate, and demonstrates the educational benefits. The book is a practical and up-to-date account of ways in which schools can use emotional literacy to realize their goals of school improvement and effectiveness, increased learning, more efficient management of teaching and learning and improved relationships. Katherine Weare shows how emotional literacy can help address persistent educational problems, such as emotional and behavioural disturbance, school exclusion, and teacher stress and disaffection. Emotional literacy is relevant to mainstream education, is most effective when it permeates the whole school culture, ethos, relationships and management. It is as relevant for secondary as it is for primary students, and applies to teachers and parents as well as to students.

Book Description :

Raising emotionally healthy children is not just about what we need to do, but what we need to avoid doing. We all know that repressing our feelings can be damaging, and that emotional repression is an especially prevalent issue among males. From a very young age, boys are socialized to hide their emotions. Girls, on the other hand, are encouraged to learn a much broader range of emotional expression. The long-term repercussions of this imbalance are profound. Many of the problems we face, both as a society and as a species, are directly affected by how we raise our boys. We are all products of nature and nurture combined. The conscious and unconscious lessons we give our children often enhance and improve their human natures, but can sometimes degrade them, too. As we come to the end of thousands of years of patriarchy, we are being challenged to redefine masculinity. Our boys are lucky to be living in such a time, and luckier when they have adults in their lives who are aware of how their minds function and what they need. If we want to raise men who are strong, confident, and whole in the best sense of these words, then parents around the world urgently need a conversation about what we teach — and don’t teach — our boys.
