School Refusal: Real Help for Children and Teens Who Can’t or Won’t Go to School – Webinar

September 27 @ 5:00 am - 1:00 pm MST

School refusal creates chaos in families and often becomes a vicious cycle in which students become trapped.

Often a symptom of anxiety and depression, school refusal creates an immediate short-term relief for kids seeking to escape aspects of the school day. But the result typically includes falling further behind academically, increased feelings of disconnection from peers, and lowered self-esteem.

Join Susan Gibbs, LPC, to learn from her extensive experience in addressing school refusal effectively. She will bridge the clinical and educational words and share approaches for both environments so you can help struggling students and families.

You will leave with the ability to:

  • Identify the 4 functions of school refusal
  • Anticipate and plan for 5 critical times of day
  • Create student and family specific plans that focus on the student’s inner wealth and human connection
  • Equip parents and educators with age-appropriate interventions to successfully handle school refusal in-the-moment
  • Apply the Nurtured Heart Approach to school refusal

Register today to help students end the cycle of school refusal by changing the way they see themselves and the world around them.
