Managing Behavioral Issues in Child Care and Schools: A Quick Reference Guide (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This new quick reference guide provides child care directors, teachers, and caregivers with essential information on managing emotional and behavioral issues in group care settings.

Topics cover social-emotional development, biting, napping difficulties, post-traumatic stress disorder, gender development, self-stimulation behaviors, and more. In addition to behavioral issues commonly seen in small children, epigenetics, medications, toxic stress, adverse childhood experiences, and how to help children who have undergone traumatic experiences are touched on by the editors.

The book contains 25 quick reference sheets on topics such as ADHD, ASD, depression, tantrums, and separation anxiety. In addition, sample daily report forms, medication forms, and other informative documents to support working with young children are also included in this comprehensive guide.

Case studies are also presented on various difficult situations with small children in a classroom setting and discuss how these situations might be handled.

A pediatrician and child and adolescent psychiatrist, Dr Mary Margaret Gleason's areas of specialty are infant and early childhood mental health and the integration of mental health services into non-mental health settings. She trained at Brown University in a triple board residency and completed an infant mental health fellowship at Tulane, where she has been on faculty since 2003. Currently, she is the clinical director of federally and locally funded consultation programs to pediatric, perinatal health care providers and early intervention professionals and is active in training medical students and residents in pediatrics, child psychiatry, and triple board. She is particularly interested in early identification and has validated an early childhood mental health screening tool, the Early Childhood Screening Assessment. She led the development of American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for evidence-based mental health treatment for young children and has been active in the Academy since residency. She is also honored to sit on the boards of Zero to Three and the National Association of Child Psychiatry Access Programs. Allison Boothe Trigg, PhD, is a clinical psychologist and associate professor at Tulane University School of Medicine in the Institute of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health, where she co-developed the Tulane early childhood mental health consultation model (ECMHC), which focuses on supporting young children's social-emotional development in early education settings. She has directed the statewide TIKES ECMHC program for over 12 years. Dr Trigg has published peer-reviewed articles on ECMHC and has spoken to many national groups about the Louisiana ECMHC model, including Zero to Three, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the US Office of Family Assistance. Prior to joining the faculty at Tulane, Dr Trigg received a master's degree in Marriage and Family Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and a master's and doctoral degree in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology from The University of Alabama. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in infant mental health at Tulane University, where she evaluated and treated children under 5 years of age in foster care, as well as their parents.
