Work, Life, and the Mental Health Care System of Care by Julie M. Rosenzweig

Book Description

When a child has an emotional or behavior disorder, parents experience a host of extra challenges as they attempt to meet their caregiving and employment responsibilities: stigma, increased stress, child care difficulties, lack of workplace supports. Professionals need to know how to help parents address these critical issues - and now there's a book that shows the way. Expertly researched and enhanced with actual strategies used by parents, this accessible resource gives professionals the up-to-date knowledge they need to support entire families, ease the pressures they face, and connect them with the best help and services.Readers will start with an inside look at what happens within a family when a child has an emotional or behavior disorder. Then they'll get a primer on parents' support needs and in-depth information and guidance they'll use to help parents: overcome stigma, an inhospitable workplace culture, and other challenges to work-life integration; communicate effectively on the job and with service providers to receive support and information; solve the child care dilemma with options such as flexible work schedules, in-home care, and the use of inclusive child care centers; improve access to school programs - and their child's outcomes; navigate the complex mental health system; and, manage the direct and indirect.
