This book is designed to help educators, school administrators and counsellors address this behaviour early, before clinical intervention is needed. It is most beneficial for children who have demonstrated refusal behaviour for a short period of time, whose symptoms are not yet severe, and who display few comorbid problems such as ADHD, conduct disorder, or severe depression. The book guides readers through the description, assessment, resolution, and future prevention of school refusal behaviour. Various evidence-based strategies are presented which address the specific needs of the child based on age and reason for refusal. Designed as a workbook, the book contains worksheets, question-and-answer sessions, case vignettes, and step-by-step instructions for exercises to increase incentives for school attendance.
