Parent Seminar

We are pleased to present this Parent Seminar as part of our ongoing educational series

What You'll Learn

Understanding & Intervening with School Refusal

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
