Understanding the variety of disorders and diagnoses found within the student population is very confusing. Most educators are trained to understand basic behavioral approaches, but little about “mental health” issues. Today, our schools are filled with students who show characteristics of many complex disorders and educators are asked to effectively work with these children. The Harvard Medical Center has found that between 3% and 10% of girls and boys, prior to the age of 18, exhibit serious behavioral issues that fall within the Conduct Disorder range. Another study shows that 3% to 5% of our school age children suffer from serious behavioral/emotional disorders. This class will simplify and explain many common disorders as well as intervention approaches.
Participants will learn about a myriad of disorders, signs and recognition aspects as well as effective strategies for helping children to be successful within our school settings. Topics such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Attachment Disorders, and Self Injurious Behaviors will be explored. Definitions, explanations, and educational interventions will be discussed.
This is a course designed for all educators working within the school setting, Preschool through High School.
