Using a unique developmental focus, this clinical handbook provides college counseling professionals and trainees with strategies for addressing the most pressing and frequently encountered issues presented by college students. These problems are considered from the perspective of biological, psychological, and social development and include issues faced by the student population according to both college year (freshman, senior, etc.) and the academic calendar, such as spring and winter breaks and exam periods. The text also addresses the particular needs of non-traditional students and the impact of cultural identity on the way in which a disorder manifests or is best treated. The only text to focus on both the developmental and clinical concerns of contemporary college students, it provides detailed information on such prevalent presenting issues as major depressive disorder, anxiety, substance abuse and addiction, eating disorders, grief, self-injury, social adjustment concerns, and intimate relationships. The text examines how a disorder usually presents and manifests in college students, addressing the role of gender, cultural identify, and age. It provides best practice treatment strategies that take into account the time-limited nature of treatment in most college counseling centers, and discusses the use of individual and group counseling. The text also addresses such issues as crisis management, teaming up with faculty and staff to develop preventive care programming, and developing alliances with parents. Case studies and descriptions of symptom presentation are derived from composites of students treated by the authors. College Student Clinical Mental Health Counseling will be useful as both a text and a ìgo-toî reference for counselors to use when working with students. Key Features: Offers a developmental approach for understanding the psychological, emotional, and social development of students in higher education Addresses the most pressing and frequently encountered difficulties of college students with relevant treatment models Focuses on specific difficulties that may occur during different academic years and according to the standard academic calendar Covers depressive disorders, substance abuse, eating disorders, self-injury, grief, social adjustment concerns, and intimate relationships Provides intervention strategies that adhere to the brief counseling framework of most college settings

This timely guide addresses the daunting challenge of meeting the increasing demand for mental health counseling services with limited resources. An invaluable resource for counselors and administrators presenting the most current practices, models, and approaches for addressing the mental health needs of today's university students. In straightforward and clear language, James Archer Jr. and Stewart Cooper demonstrate how to organize, implement, and manage effective counseling, prevention, and development services on four year college campuses. Counseling and Mental Health Services on Campus explains how the efficient and effective models of brief therapy and group counseling are especially well-suited to the college environment and demonstrates how university programs can expand counseling services through the creative use of paraprofessionals, faculty, and staff, professional volunteers, and part-time staff. Archer and Cooper offer practical counseling approaches that will meet the needs of students with specific problems, such as substance abuse and eating disorders, as well as students with developmental concerns. The authors also suggest useful techniques and strategies for working with a variety of populations such as women, minority groups, gay, lesbian, and bisexual students, and adult learners. An innovative new approach is described which the authors call the initiator-catalyst approach and the book's illustrative examples demonstrate the application and effectiveness of this important new model.

Harm to Others offers students and clinicians an effective way to increase their knowledge of and training in violence risk and threat assessment, and it also provides a comprehensive examination of current treatment approaches. Although the text includes many examples from K–12 and college/university settings, which are particularly relevant for mental health professionals in school settings, the underlying concepts and suggestions are useful for counselors, psychologists, and social workers who face these issues in their daily practice. In an easy-to-understand, jargon-free manner, Dr. Van Brunt shares his observations, extensive clinical expertise, and the latest research on what clinicians should be aware of when performing risk and threat assessments. In addition, he offers numerous examples from recent mass shootings and rampage violence to help explain the motivations and risk factors of those who make threats. Two detailed case examples are presented to illustrate key concepts related to assessing dangerousness. Treatment options are then described, using a variety of diverse case studies to demonstrate concrete approaches for clients who have been identified as at risk for violence following a threat assessment. *Requests for digital versions from the ACA can be found on wiley.com. *To request print copies, please visit the ACA website.
