Dr. Gurmal Rattan of the Department of Educational and School Psychology, coedited the book Emotional Disorders: A Neuropsychological, Psychopharmacological, and Educational Perspective.

The book was coedited with Dr. Steven Feifer, a graduate from the IUP doctoral School Psychology program. Feifer was the recipient of the School Psychologist of the Year award bestowed by the National Association of School Psychologists at the recent convention in February 2009.

Rattan wrote a chapter in the book titled “Psychopharmacology, Depression, and Alternative Treatment Modalities,” which highlighted the psychopharmacological hypotheses and clinical approaches used to treat depression and other emotional disorders. Rattan also coauthored the chapter “School Achievement, Neuropsychological Constructs, and Emotional Disorders.” The focus of this chapter examined brain-behaviors relationships associated with achievement and emotional problems.
