Workshop: Understanding the Intervening with School Refusal
As students transition into the new school year, many experience feelings of fear, anxiety, depression, social isolation, and rejection. The intensity of these feelings can be both overwhelming and debilitating and as result lead to school refusal and social isolation. Parents and educators understanding the etiology of school refusal is important and necessary to accurately intervene and re-engage students in their academic environment.
