This book explores emotional disorders from a neuropsychological, psychopharmacological, and educational perspective in order to assist educators in their quest for more meaningful and enduring interventions. There will be a detailed discussion on the neurobiological correlates of mood and anxiety disorders, psychopathology and violence, as well as the neural basis of empathy and altruistic behavior. The relationship between executive dysfunction and emotional wellness will be featured, along with a detailed synopsis of medication treatmen options for children. The spectrum of topics should offer wide appeal to both educators and psychologists, as well as allied mental health providers. In summary, there is compelling evidence that emotional wellness can be enhanced through early prevention efforts, appropriate assessment strategies, and an improved school climate to foster both social-emotional functioning and academic performance in all children.
