School Refusal: Assessment and Intervention
Speaker: Alex Hirshberg, Psy.D., James Levine and Associates, P.C.
Description: Anxiety disorders are on the rise in the United States. Students who experience anxiety in school may use school refusal to manage the emotional distress this environment elicits. This behavior can quickly become reinforced, leading to a pernicious cycle where the student falls further behind and becomes even more anxious about attending school. This course will review how to assess school refusal behavior and how to use assessment data to inform intervention.Register Now
