Description

Excerpt

Teachers, counselors, and others who work with children, particularly those who work in a school setting, commonly encounter nonattendance of students. Reasons for nonattendance include parent-excused medical concerns, student-motivated delinquency, and, frequently, school anxiety. Almost half of school psychologists in a US national survey reported working with students who engaged in school refusal (Miller and Jome 2010), which involves school avoidance due to the student's emotional distress. The characteristics of students with anxiety-based school refusal, their outcomes, and interventions are of considerable interest to professionals who work with school-age children because of the resultant disruptions in their academic achievement and social skills development.
