Book Description

In this workshop, Dr. Albano discusses a prescriptive treatment approach to treating school refusal behavior in children. Dr. Albano begins her workshop with a definition of school refusal, and she reviews the four primary reasons underlying school refusal behavior.  She also discusses the most evidence-based methods for assessing these conditions. The workshop focuses on several strategies (e.g. creating routines, reinforcement procedures, creating contracts, etc.) that have been demonstrated to work for effectively engaging parents and school personnel in a partnership to return the child to full school functioning. Runtime: 259 minutes.
