Description

This book presents a framework for systematically addressing the health needs of children by integrating health, mental health, and educational systems of care. From leading scientist-practitioners, the volume is grounded in cutting-edge research as well as public policy mandates on health promotion and prevention for at-risk students. Strategies are delineated for developing and evaluating evidence-based programs targeting a variety of goals, including successfully integrating children with health problems into school, bolstering adherence to health interventions, and planning and monitoring pharmacological interventions. Multidisciplinary approaches to prevention are also discussed in detail. The book's concluding section provides guidelines for preparing professionals for health-related careers.show more
