About the Author

Victoria B. Damiani is a nationally certified school psychologist and professor emeritus of educational and school psychology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Her research interests include school-based mental health, families of children with special needs, and gifted education.


This book is a must-read for all teachers! With many teacher education programs eliminating courses regarding developmental and emotional issues, this book fills that gap. Dr. Damiani offers practical, easy-to-implement, and common-sense strategies to help identify troubled youth, promote teacher-student connections, and help sustain both physical and psychological safety within the school setting. Teachers' knowledge of crisis prevention and intervention strategies is critical to a safe school climate, maintaining good classroom management, thus increasing achievement. -- Melissa A.
