Chapter 4 outlines the treatment for children with school refusal behavior who are motivated by a desire to avoid emotions such as fear, dread, anxiety, panic, or depression that can become associated with certain school-related objects or situations. For these children, the main goal of treatment is to change the child’s avoidance behavior and build coping and active school attendance behaviors. Detailed descriptions of each session are provided, along with homework assignments. The child is taught skills such as relaxation and deep breathing. Case vignettes and sample dialogues are included.
