About this event: It is not uncommon for some students to dislike school, but when they are chronically absent or consistently finding excuses to avoid school, there may be a deeper issue present. The pattern of school refusal and avoidance is often confusing, frustrating, and even maddening for parents. As a result, other patterns begin to form in the parent-child relationship which, unbeknownst to parents, can begin to form an entirely different set of problems as it relates to family dynamics, impact on siblings, self-esteem, and future identity as a student.
This session will help parents to:
- Define what “school refusal” is
- Identify the clinical symptoms and underlying issues
- Understand common and contributing causes
- Learn to differentiate between common avoidance or a more serious problem
- Learning how to optimize the relationship between home, school, and therapy
- Effectively learn how to prepare for the upcoming school year
