Young adults enter college with many challenges—complicated family dynamics, identity issues, and extreme pressure to succeed, among others. Students may also have mental health difficulties, ranging from adjustment disorders to mood disorders, and growing numbers of them are seeking help on campus. But these students are also resilient and eager to learn, stepping onto campus with hope for a new and better phase of life. Doris Iarovici, a psychiatrist at Duke University Counseling and Psychological Services, sees in college and university mental health services an opportunity for mental health professionals to bring about positive change with young people during a crucial period of their development. Dr. Iarovici describes the current college mental health crisis and narrates how college mental health services have evolved along with changes in student populations. She discusses students’ lifestyle problems and psychiatric concerns, using case vignettes to explore a variety of interventions. Included are discussions of substance abuse, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, depression and anxiety, and culture clashes. Problems uniquely addressed in this book include sleep disturbances and perfectionism. An essential component of the volume is a guide to making emergency assessments, from risk classification and hospitalization to public safety and communication within and outside the campus community.

Mental health concerns are the most serious and prevalent health problems among students in higher education. Increasingly effective psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatments have facilitated matriculation for students with histories of anxiety, mood, personality, eating and substance abuse disorders. This phenomenon has been accompanied by a striking increase in the number of previously undiagnosed students requesting treatment. College and university mental health programs struggle to care for larger numbers of students, necessitating greater interdisciplinary collaboration in treatment, research, outreach, and educational services. This book fills an important gap in the literature and provides a comprehensive resource for nearly every aspect of college mental health. It includes a strong emphasis on the training and education of graduate and professional students for future work in this field. Chapters are devoted to the significant ethical and legal issues related to treatment and associated administrative and policy challenges. Scholarly chapters on the promise of community mental health and public health approaches are especially innovative. There is also a chapter on international issues in college mental health which will be helpful to those students studying abroad. Mental Health Care in the College Community is written by acknowledged experts from mental health, college and university administration, legal and educational disciplines, all with extensive administrative and clinical experience in higher education settings. This book is clearly written and well illustrated with abundant tables, charts, and figures. This text will become essential reading for college mental health clinicians, graduate students in the mental health disciplines (psychiatry, psychology, counselling, nursing, and social work), student affairs deans and their staff, and even presidents or provosts of universities and colleges.

Here is a book that provides college counselors and therapists with some of the most important developmental perspectives needed in today's work with students. Too often, counseling centers are seen only as emotional rehabilitators. Yet, College Student Development illustrates the importance of developmental knowledge in terms of how students’personal histories, including cultural influences in their lives, interact to determine the dilemmas and challenges facing them and all those who work on college and university campuses today. This is the only book available today which bridges the span between university counseling centers and student development (deans') offices. It offers specific frameworks for understanding counseling work in developmental terms. The presentation early in the book of a student development metamodel for counseling center professionals provides a strong base for understanding the other topics addressed in the book. It is a solid bridge for counselors in college and university settings dedicated to helping students develop into secure and confident adults in their public, interpersonal, and private lives. This multi-authored book has many chapters that show counselors how to work together with students to gather clues and reach important realizations to make long-term and lasting changes in their lives. Case examples and histories throughout the book make its theories easily applicable to all counseling centers at colleges and universities. Among the development theory topics counselors will discover are: Changing Student Culture and Implications for Counselors and Administrators Typical Development in the College Years Survey Results of Undergraduate Concerns Special Aspects of College Student Development for African-Americans Male and Female Differences in College Student Development College Student Development is most appropriate for staff members of counseling and development offices. Professors and students in master's and doctorate level counseling psychology and student development programs and college student development courses (developmental theory) will find this an enlightening approach to helping college students.

Not long ago, conventional wisdom held that ADHD was a disorder of childhood only—that somewhere during puberty or adolescence, the child would outgrow it. Now we know better: the majority of children with the disorder continue to display symptoms throughout adolescence and into adulthood. It is during the teen and young adult years that the psychological and academic needs of young people with ADHD change considerably, and clinical and campus professionals are not always sufficiently prepared to meet the challenge. College Students with ADHD is designed to bring the professional reader up to speed. The book reviews the latest findings on ADHD in high school and college students, assessment methods, and pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions. Practical guidelines are included for helping young adults make the transition to college, so they may cope with their disorder and do as well as possible in school and social settings. Coverage is straightforward, realistic, and geared toward optimum functioning and outcomes. Among the topics featured: - Background information, from current statistics to diagnostic issues. - ADHD in high school adolescents. - ADHD in college students: behavioral, academic, and psychosocial functioning. - Assessment of ADHD in college students. - Psychosocial/educational treatment of ADHD in college students. - Pharmacotherapy for college students with ADHD. - Future directions for practice and research. The comprehensive information in College Students with ADHD provides a wealth of information to researchers and professionals working with this population, including clinical and school psychologists, school and college counselors, special education teachers, social workers, developmental psychologists, and disability support staff on college campuses, as well as allied mental health providers.

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.
