About the Author

William Dikel, MD, a child and adolescent psychiatrist who assists school districts nationwide, lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.


A complete reference that will assist teachers as they help students navigate their school career, this book provides comprehensive descriptions of mental health conditions and explains the educational system in the context of student mental health with the understanding that teachers are not clinicians who can diagnose. Most importantly, it offers a sensible paradigm through which educators can collaborate with administrators and other licensed and non-licensed staff to ensure that our students get what they need in order to be successful. I will definitely use this book.-- (02/01/2015)

Dikel presents information in clearly defined sections that include definitions of disorders, 'manifestations in the classroom, ' and treatment. This format should make it easy for a teacher to navigate foreign terrain. . . . [A] welcome addition to a school social worker's bookshelf of resources. . . . A newer teacher may benefit from reading this book before entering the conference room for his or her first interdisciplinary meeting.-- (02/01/2015)
The wealth of knowledge captured in each section exemplifies the significance of school-based mental health service and support. This guide should be a permanent reference in the public and personal libraries of practitioners and parents who seek an extensive review of evidence-based techniques to effectively address factors associated with school mental health. . . . Highly recommended.-- (02/01/2015)
Dr. Dikel's book is a unique and necessary tool for general and special education teachers, student support service providers, and school administrators. It is an easy-to-read, comprehensive resource that provides valuable information about identifying and responding to the mental health needs of students through a full continuum of school-based services. Guidelines for establishing school and district mental health plans offer a valuable contribution to the field. This is a must-read for educators and anyone else invested in promoting student mental health and academic success!--Nancy Lever, PhD, & Sharon Stephan, PhD, Co-Directors, Center for School Mental Health, University of Maryland
