Chronically Absent: How to Manage School Refusal

April 18 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm MDT


EXPERTS: Dr. Lindsay Henderson, Clinical Director, Fort Health & Dr. Jeffrey Kassinove, Founder, Academics West

Some children actively resist attending or staying in school for an entire day because of emotional distress — this is a phenomenon called school refusal.

School refusal is a symptom, and it can stem from a combination of underlying issues including mental health challenges, bullying, learning difficulties, or stressful life experiences.

 Join us for a webinar aimed at demystifying school refusal, understanding its causes, and sharing practical advice on how to best support a child who refuses to go to or stay in school.

This roundtable discussion will cover:

  1. School refusal and why it happens.
  2. Early signs of school refusal.
  3. Strategies for support and collaboration.
  4. When and how to get professional help.
