about

This text is for Child and Adolescent Mental Health courses in Child and Youth Care (CYC) programs.

This unique Canadian text provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of mental health difficulties from both a psychological and CYC perspective. It presents the psychology content alongside specific CYC theories, models and interventions using language congruent to the CYC approach. It grew from the collaboration of two CYC faculty: Deb Gural, a psychology instructor and Dawne MacKay-Chiddenton, a CYC instructor. 

The aim of this text is to enhance mental health literacy in CYC students and CYC practitioners (CYCPs). CYCPs need to understand and appreciate all aspects of young people's mental health and know how to intervene and when to refer. Faculty will appreciate the practice-oriented approach of this text and students will appreciate that both theory and practical guidelines are included, making it a useful field reference.
