Chapter 3 is the first of several chapters devoted to the specific treatment guidelines for school attendance problems, with an emphasis on the most common scenarios evident in this population. This chapter focuses on elementary school children who are anxious about school and thus have attendance problems. Chapter 3 includes detailed recommendations for psychoeducation, somatic management techniques, and gradual reintegration into school. The recommendations are tailored to this younger age group and include those circumstances most characteristic of younger children with school attendance problems, such as difficulty with a new school or teacher, increased academic work, transitions between areas of the school, and the school bus. The specific mechanics of each treatment technique are explained at length. Core intervention components and procedures to expand the effectiveness of these core components are covered.
