Dr. Bruce S. Sharkin, a staff psychologist at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania, addresses general warning signs of student distress, symptoms of specific psychological problems such as anxiety and depression, guidelines for interventions, and methods of making a referral for counseling. The book also examines current mental health issues for college students and provides an overview of common campus policies and procedures, such as psychological emergencies, withdrawal and readmission, and mandatory counseling. College Students in Distress provides the answers you need to manage difficult--and potentially dangerous--situations on campus. Case examples based on real-life experiences give you a clear sense of what can happen when responding to students in emotional distress, particularly when dealing with specific issues and student populations, and will help in your efforts to review and/or revise the current practices of your school.
