MEDIA REVIEWS
Sensitivity is shown to different cultural perspectives, and familial support for student independence is strongly encouraged. For the clinician, the book provides a useful overview of challenges facing today's college students and helps the clinician gain familiarity with college campus resources. * Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry *
If you wish to help parents have meaningful conversations with their child about college expectations and also to understand how college 'works', then this book should be on your reference shelf. Authors Trevouledes and Grieger, two mental health experts, can help advisors apply a set of parent's lenses to view the 'mysteries' of college life, its bureaucracy, and its own educational jargon. One strength of this book is its depth of information on cultivating the student's emotional wellness. The chapters explain how to be aware of signs of depression, suicidal tendencies, and addiction. Parents learn how to take action and which college services can help, if needed. Another strength is that the book recognizes how communication strategies may differ within other cultures. While its major message about using open communication is constant, 'how' this occurs varies in diverse populations. Minority families often play a strategic role in supporting the success of their child, so reaffirming various communication methods is an important point. * NACADA Journal *

This is an important book for parents with students who are headed to or already in college. Success and Sanity is a comprehensive book, covering...crucial topics for college parents. . . .Parents who want a comprehensive and realistic picture of college life and what to expect for their college student should read Success and Sanity on the College Campus. * College Parent Central *
Drs. Trevouledes & Grieger have written an indispensable resource that is a must read for all parents and their college-bound children. I know of no other book that provides parents, students, educators and guidance counselors with all the information they might need to prepare for the many challenges and rewards of life on todays' college campus. With this valuable guide in hand, parents and students will have the knowledge as well as the tools that will enable the student to have a more successful and fulfilling college experience.This comprehensive and authoritative text is certain to become a classic in the field.It is an exceptionally well written and thoughtfully organized book that will be a source of vital information that parents will turn to again and again. -- Michael Behar, M.D., Board Certified Child, Adolescent & Adult Pyschiatrist in private practice NYC; Senior Psychiatric Consultant - Fordham University Student Counseling Services; Senior Psychiatric Consultant - Jewish Board of Family & Children's Services; Co-author "The Physician's Desk Reference (PDR) Guide to Pediatric and Adolescent Mental Health"
As a psychologist in private practice who treats college students and provides consultation and supervision to trainees and staff at nearby college counseling centers I have long noted the absence of literature to help students and their parents understand the contemporary college campus culture, the psychological hurdles so many students face, and the resources that are available to them. This book admirably fills this need. Trevouleds and Grieger use clear, straightforward language to provide parents the information they seek and require in an honest and supportive way. This book ought to be required reading for parents who want to familiarize themselves with the social and emotional challenges that the college experience presents and who want to know how best to help their children navigate the college years . It also belongs on the bookshelves of teachers, administrators and mental health professionals whose charge it is to attend to these students. I have been doing this work for decades and learned much by reading this book. -- Marc Rehm, Ph.D, Clinical Psychologist - Private Practice and Consultant for The Rosemary Furman Counseling Center, Barnard College.
Parents have a significant role in facilitating the success and emotional well-being of their children as they navigate the college years. Success and Sanity on The College Campus: a Guide for Parents by Dr. Diana Trevouledes and Dr. Ingrid Grieger, two highly experienced and competent campus professionals, is engaging, well-researched, and provides real-world recommendations that parents can readily use. I am certain I will refer to this book frequently to guide me through the remainder of my son's college experience and to inform me about how I can promote my daughter's adjustment and independence as she begins her own journey through college. As a parent and as a counseling psychologist, I highly recommend this book to other parents, as well as to high school counselors and teachers, college and university faculty, and other campus professionals. It is an invaluable resource for all of these audiences. -- Merle Keitel, Ph.D.,Professor, Fordham University Graduate School of Education
