Teaching Social Skills to Youth with Mental Health Disorders
Research and experience show that children and adolescents who struggle with emotional, behavioral and social problems do improve when they learn prosocial skills. Social skill instruction, therefore, can be a vital component in the treatment planning for a child diagnosed with a mental health disorder. Teaching Social Skills to Youth with Mental Health Disorders is a guide for therapists, counselors, psychologists, educators, and other practitioners trying to help these youth get better.
In this book, you’ll find an introduction to the DSM-IV-TR and other mental health assessment and evaluation tools and how to individualize treatment plans while considering children’s developmental, cultural, behavioral, emotional social, genetic, and biological variables.
