EVENT - Addressing School Avoidance Behavior in Children and Adolescents
1/17/2018 6:30 pm – 08:00 pm | Campus Events
Please join us for an interactive discussion with Randi Pochtar, Clinical Psychologist, from NYU Child Study Center, around the topic of school avoidance in children and adolescents.
School avoidance is a common problem, affecting approximately 28% of children and adolescents. It is particularly concerning due to its potential short and long term impacts on the child and family. It is generally found that the longer a child misses school, the more and more these problems are likely to develop. This presentation will provide information about cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) skills to address school refusal, and guidance for how parents can best support teens who are having difficulties attending school.
