Chapter 3 covers what happens during a consultation session. The therapist usually summarizes assessment results and provides recommendations to the family about treatment. Some general points are presented regarding treatment sessions such as how long treatment will last and how to handle missed sessions. The importance of completing homework between sessions is discussed as well as the importance of gradually increasing the child’s school attendance. Parents are encouraged to discuss any issues with the therapist and to rely on the therapist for support throughout the treatment process. Parents are also encouraged to read all the chapters in this workbook no matter what their child’s reason for school refusal may be.
