Children who miss substantial amounts of school pose one of the most vexing problems for school officials. In many cases, school personnel must assess these students and successfully help them to return to the academic setting. This can be difficult considering most school-based professionals are pressed for time and do not have access to proper resources. The information in this book can help school officials combat absenteeism and reduce overall dropout rates. Designed for guidance counselors, teachers, principals and deans, school psychologists, school-based social workers, and other school professionals, Helping School-Refusing Children and Their Parents outlines various strategies for helping children get back to school with less distress, all of which can be easily implemented in schools. This fully-updated second edition provides recommendations for a multi-tiered approach to school absenteeism that concentrates on prevention (Tier 1), early intervention for emerging cases (Tier 2), and more extensive intervention and systemic strategies for severe cases (Tier 3), with each tier based on empirically supported strategies grounded in scientific research. A chapter on assessment describes several methods for identifying school refusal behavior, including time-limited techniques for school officials who have little opportunity to conduct detailed evaluations. Worksheets for facilitating assessment are included and can easily be photocopied from the book. Other chapters provide advice for working collaboratively with parents, preventing relapse, and special issues. Topics such as poverty, homelessness, teenage pregnancy, violence, and school safety are also addressed, as are individualized education or 505 plans and consultation with other clinicians.

School refusal behavior in adolescents prevents children from fomenting their education and may result in increased turmoil within the family system. Causal factors include bullying, separation anxiety, coping ability, difficulties with classroom routine, difficulty with peer or teacher relationships, and low academic self-concept. Utilizing hermeneutic and heuristic methodologies, this thesis considers empirical studies of evidence-based interventions, modalities such as mindfulness and positive psychology, the intendment of technology as a catalyst for school refusal, and literature from depth psychology in exploring ways to assist those exhibiting school-refusal behaviors. There are deficits in the study of all types of adolescent anxiety, including that related to school refusal. More research is warranted in how depth psychological approaches may be used to replace or enhance other evidence-based interventions as a means for returning adolescents to school.

School Refusal Behaviour (SRB), is when a child or adolescent does not want to go to school - they are either reluctant to go at all or find it hard to stay in class for the whole day, on an ongoing basis. S for School Refusal Behaviour (SRB) recognises this as a complex behaviour with multiple factors contributing to its development and persistence. In the school context it is not possible to control all the factors that contribute to the SRB outside of the school context. However, school-related factors that contribute to the SRB can be addressed. Based on the evidence-based approach of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), S for School Refusal Behaviour is a step-by-step guide that will help you develop a re-entry plan that outlines what the child's initial return to school looks like and the steps and strategies that can be used to gradually progress the child's school attendance to part-time or full-time on an ongoing basis. Use the practical tools (checklists, forms and strategies) provided to develop comprehensive PBS plans that can be used to support children of all ages consistently in all contexts. This invaluable resource is useful for parents, caregivers, educators in childcare, early childhood, primary and secondary schools, disability, youth and mental health support services, allied health and supervisory professionals.
