Chapter 6 focuses on middle and high school youth who are increasingly disengaged from school and who may be pursuing activities outside of school during school hours. Chapter 6 includes detailed recommendations for psychoeducation, family work that can include agreements for problem-solving and enhanced communication, and work with school officials to modify academic requirements in line with a particular youth’s attendance status and potential alternative pathway toward graduation. In addition, frequent consultations between school-based personnel, mental health professionals, and parents are recommended regarding a student’s attendance status, grades, required past and present academic work, and legal and other policies regarding absenteeism. Core intervention components and procedures to expand the effectiveness of these core components are covered.
