Schools and Student Mental Health (9:54) Nathaniel von der Embse, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of school psychology at the University of South Florida and co-chair of the National Association of School Psychologists Government and Professional Relations Workgroup (NASP GPR). Dr. von der Embse utilizes a social justice framework to examine the intersection of education policy and school mental health. One out of every 4 or 5 students will display a significant mental health problem over the course of their lifetime, and those students can be identified early with considerable accuracy if educators are given the right training and tools. Unfortunately, most schools rely on reactive methods, like office discipline referrals, to figure out which students need behavioral and mental health services. Should schools stop waiting for red flags and act sooner? Successful People and Rest (54:19) Alex Pang, Ph.D., is the founder of the Restful Company and a visiting scholar at Stanford University. He is the author of two books “Rest: Why you get more done when you work less” and “The Distraction Addiction.” What if I told you that you get more done when you work less? Would you believe me? Alex Pang, author of many books including best seller titled “Rest” published a new article “The most successful people make room for rest” and he discusses how we can avoid overworking ourselves and still meet deadlines.
